Question: What does the Office of Professional Medical Conduct do?

Answer: Thank you for writing.

The Office of Professional Medical Conduct is a division of the New York State Department of Health and investigates complaints about physicians, physician assistants and specialist assistants and monitors practitioners who are subject to Orders of the State Board for Professional Medical Conduct. The division provides a listing of all physicians, physician assistants, specialist assistants, and professional medical corporations who have been disciplined since 1990, or who are subject to a non-disciplinary Board Order, or upon whom charges of misconduct have been served.

If you live outside of New York and have concerns about healthcare professionals, contact your State medical board via this link:
