When you need help with a medical problem, it’s important that you find the right doctor. When you need help with a doctor, it’s important you find the right board at the Department of Consumer Affairs.
In the State of California, if you have a complaint involving a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, a D.O., you should file that complaint with Osteopathic Medical Board of California. That’s a different board than the one that investigates complaints against Medical Doctors, or M.D.s. A complaint against a medical doctor should be made to the Medical Board of California.
Confusing the two different boards is a mistake scores of consumers are making. If you file a complaint with the wrong board at the Department of Consumer Affairs, we’ll do our best to make certain it gets in front of the right people. But that may mean your issue won’t be addressed as quickly as possible.
