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.
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.

The incumbent, Larry Walker, is retiring on March 4 and before that date the board must appoint someone to fill the remainder of Mr. Walker’s four-year term, which ends in January 2019. The board will conduct a public process to appoint Mr. Walker’s successor, including a public interview of the most-qualified applicants.
State law requires the Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector to be a registered voter who lives within the County of San Bernardino and to possess certain specific qualifications in the areas of accounting and finance.

County employees were moved by the compassionate, inspiring and powerful speeches former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Pastor Rick Warren gave during Monday’s event at Citizen’s Business Bank Arena.
We were also moved by the performances of soloist Bridgett Bentley and the San Bernardino County Association of African American Employees Choir. They performed amazing renditions of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Lean on Me.”

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.
