Tips For Investigating Your Doctor From Home

Before you decide on a doctor there are a few things you can do to investigate his or her past.

1. Check the status of your doctor’s license.

2. Check whether your doctor has ever been in trouble by the state medical board.

3. Search to see if your doctor has been sued or has been arrested in Sacramento County. Simply type in the doctor’s name, then search under “Criminal and Civil”.  Sacramento County now charges for these searches.

Google your doctor to see what others are saying.
