The Art Of Complaining: How To Speak Up And Get The Results You Want
Getting Results On Medical Matters
If you are not seeing eye to eye with your doctor or you are unhappy about the way she treated you as a patient, you should complain not only for yourself but other patients as well. Consult another doctor in the same practice about your grievance. If your doctor is affiliated with a hospital, file a complaint there.
If all fails, Real Simple, recommends contacting your state’s medical society or licensing board for instructions on how to file a complaint. The American Medical Association will also have this information available. “Once you file a formal complaint (you may have the option of filing electronically or by mail), the medical board reviews it. If the board finds a violation, it could take action against the doctor, ranging from a fine to revocation of the doctor’s license,” notes Real Simple.
