FAKE AGENT CALLS
The Board Staff has received several phone calls from multiple licensees stating that someone is calling pretending to be an agent of the Medical Board and trying to obtain personal information. These calls are scams. Information regarding your licensure number, issue date, expiration date, and address of record is available on the Board’s website. Your NPI number is also available on the Internet. The Board would not contact you by phone to obtain your personal information. We would contact you to set up a time that you can contact us and give you a valid call back number or schedule an in person meeting. The Board is located in Atlanta, GA and all phone numbers from the Board will have Atlanta area codes. (404, 470, 678 or 770) If you receive a call like this please do not give any personal information and disconnect the call. If you need any additional information, please contact Jonathan McGehee, Director of Investigations at email@example.com.
I need a doctor. Will the Georgia Medical Board refer me to a physician?
No. We cannot make physician referrals. However, you may call your local county or state medical society who may be able to refer you to a specialist. The telephone number is listed in the business white pages of the telephone directory. The Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) has a County Medical Society listing on their web page. Please click here to go to the MAG homepage. Or you may wish to contact your health insurance carrier to inquire whether or not they have a list of preferred physicians or physicians in your area who accept your particular health insurance plan. As a courtesy to the health care consuming public of Georgia, we do offer a guide on "How do I know if a doctor is right for me?" on our web page. Please click the title and it will take you to the guide.
