Health Leaders Media

Practicing California doctors now have until June 27 to post signs in their offices or—if they don’t have an office—to otherwise notify their patients in writing the name of the licensing agency to call with quality of care complaints. The new regulation is designed to “inform consumers where to go for information or with a complaint about California medical doctors,” according to a statement from the Medical Board of California, the disciplinary and licensing agency for the state’s 125,000 doctors.
