Physician License Lookup - Public Disclosure
In reviewing a physician's information, it is important to know what is and is not available from the Medical Board of California (Board) about physicians licensed by the State of California. Please be aware that while some information is not available on a physician's profile on the website, pursuant to law, it may be available through the Board via telephone or upon a written request.
California law does not permit all of a physician's records to be posted on the Board's website. The Public Disclosure Information chart provides an overview on how you may request information from the Board and what method you must use to obtain this information. The Board's Frequently Asked Questions - Public Information/Disclosure provides additional information.
The Physician Profile Description provides you with a guide to understanding what is displayed on the profile.
Under California law, the following information is confidential and NOT public and would NOT appear on a record if applicable to the physician:
- Complaints made to the Medical Board of California
- Investigations conducted by the Medical Board of California
- Misdemeanor convictions that occurred after January 1, 2007 and did not result in an accusation or disciplinary action being filed by the Board
- Some medical malpractice information, e.g., pending or dismissed cases. This information may be available at the local county courthouse in the "Civil Index."
