When the board receives a written complaint against a doctor or physician’s assistant, the complaint goes immediately to the investigative staff. The investigative staff then conducts a thorough investigation and provides an investigation report to the Board. The Board can then either dismiss the case or go forward with formal proceedings. If the result of the formal proceedings is that the licensee violated a law or regulation then the Board will sanction the licensee.
