New York, NY (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is launching a completely revamped, custom-designed new search engine to check state medical licensing boards for doctor discipline records.
In keeping with its mission to be America's trusted source for identifying top doctors, Castle Connolly understands that consumers want to be certain that the doctor they are going to has a "clean bill of health" and their medical license is current and in good-standing without any limitations.
The overwhelming majority of doctors in America don't pose problems in this area. But Castle Connolly's physician-led research team and the company's senior management understand that there are unfortunately some practitioners whose professional conduct has been sufficiently problematic to warrant disciplinary action by their state medical licensing boards. It is these types of physicians that consumers justifiably want to avoid.
Some of the major disciplinary actions taken against physicians include: incompetent or negligent care to patients, over or under prescribing drugs, substance abuse and sexual misconduct. The doctor discipline record search engine provides consumers with the knowledge to make an informed decision when choosing a doctor.
Included in the database are 46 states and the District of Columbia. Please note that the 4 states not included are: Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina and South Dakota, but there are links on the Castle Connolly website that will conveniently direct you to each of the 4 states' individual doctor disciplinary website.
