How do I find out if my doctor has ever been sued for malpractice?
Complaints and Investigations are considered confidential by state law, O.C.G.A. §§ 43-1-19(h)(2) and 43-34-37(d). Therefore, the Medical Board is prohibited by state statute from disclosing to the public investigative information or complaint information.
However pursuant to O.C.G.A 43-34A-3 (c) (17)(A)(B)(C) some information regarding certain malpractice judgments and/or settlements is available on the physician's profile.
