Los Angeles Times

California’s medical board is less likely than those in other states to revoke doctors’ licenses or take other serious disciplinary action, according to a consumer advocate’s report released this week.

California ranked 41st among boards in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in taking serious disciplinary action against doctors last year, according to the report released Monday by Public Citizen, a Washington-based consumer group.
