Q:Where can I get information about my doctor's background and qualifications?
A:The Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners provides a free detailed profile on Nevada physicians, including educational background, where the doctor practices, and who is board certified. The public can learn about malpractice suits, as well as any Nevada hospital action to remove privileges, such as the right to perform back surgery. The board will also release information on formal disciplinary actions against the physicians. Complaints are not public records.
Reno number: (775) 688-2559
Las Vegas area residents can reach the Reno office toll-free by calling 486-6244 or (888) 890-8210.
