Check up on your doctor’s license

The Medical Board of California has made it easier than ever for Californians to check up on their doctors.

The Medical Board encourages consumers to check up on their doctor’s license.  Such a checkup is simple and helps consumers make informed choices when choosing a doctor.

To determine a doctor’s status, go to the Medical Board’s website at www.mbc.ca.gov. Please note: if you do not have a computer, call (800) 633-2322 and someone at the Medical Board will look up the doctor for you.

To use the website, click on “License Search” on the home page. Then choose the license type by clicking the checkbox for “Physician and Surgeon.” Then click “Search by Name.”FRONT_panel

Enter the doctor’s last name and first initial. If it is a common last name, enter the entire first name. Make sure the names are spelled correctly. Then click on “Search.”

Click on his or her name. Review license details, including verifying whether any disciplinary actions are listed at the bottom of the page.

If you have any questions regarding the information on the doctor’s profile, you may contact the Medical Board or discuss it with your doctor.

The Medical Board also encourages consumers to sign up for the MBC Subscribers’ Alerts on the home page to be notified by email of disciplinary actions taken against a physician’s license, including probationary status, suspension or revocation.

Encouraging patients to check up on their doctor’s license is part of the Medical Board’s ongoing mission of consumer protection. For more information or assistance, please call (800) 633-2322.

Children’s Fund continues annual holiday toy and gift drive

children's fundDear Friend,

The time has arrived for our 27th Annual Celebration of Giving Campaign Holiday Gift & Toy Drive.  Working together, we continue to provide a bright future for the children we serve, because we believe they are strong and resilient.  A holiday gift of toys, clothes, or books can serve as a profound reminder that others care for them, no matter their circumstance.  Last year, due to the generosity of individuals like you, thousands of children received a meaningful gift during the holidays. For some of these precious children, this was the only gift they received.

We invite you to join us again this year at the following locations, as we raise funds and gifts for the children throughout San Bernardino County who need our generosity and support this holiday season.  Please click here for details.
