Shouldn’t you know if your doctor is on probation?
San Diego Union-Tribune

If your doctor was put on probation by the state medical licensing board, wouldn’t you like to know about it? Of course you would, but most patients have no idea when their doctor has been disciplined by the Medical Board and put on probation.

Most physicians, in fact, when they are disciplined do not have their licenses revoked, but are put on probation under conditions that promote their rehabilitation. That anonymity could change if the state Senate approves SB 1033 this month.
