Medical Board FAQ’s

Just how do I file a grievance against my doctor?

Even though, the NSWMB certainly supports the principles of qualified, compassionate, ethical care and superior patient-doctor communication, we’re not an organization that’s authorized to review individual patient grievances.

Can I check if my physician has had grievances against him or her in days gone by?

Additionally, some state medical licensing boards may supply advice regarding disciplinary measures. Some states supply this info for free; small fees charge.

Just how do I whine about the care?

Even though, the NSWMB supports the principles of qualified, compassionate, ethical care and superior patient-doctor communication, we’re not an organization that’s authorized to review particular criticisms about care.

How can I find out if a physician is giving me the proper medical attention?

It’s acceptable to seek a second opinion from a different doctor for those who have questions regarding your care. Nevertheless, national medical specialty societies might help you in locating medical advice associated with your state and create practice standards.

Just how do I get my medical records?

Your records can be requested by you directly from the hospital medical records department or from your physician. (Some records, including advice unique to cancer, are maintained by the pathology section of the hospital.) Remember that offices may simply maintain records for some period as needed by the individual state. You need to telephone the office to be sure your records continue to be on file.
