What happens if a complaint is filed against me with the Iowa Board of Medicine?

When a complaint is filed with the Board it is first reviewed at a meeting of the executive director, medical advisor, legal director and chief investigator. That meeting determines the level of investigation that is required for the complaint. Cases that are not determined to be serious are sent to the full Board. Otherwise, the complaint is assigned to an investigator. The investigator reviews all relevant records and conducts all relevant interviews. The investigator then prepares a report for the Board who reviews the report and makes a decision. The Board can dismiss the case or can impose sanctions against the doctor.
