Each year, approximately 3,000 complaints are lodged before the Illinois Medical Disciplinary Board against physicians, physician's assistants, and other medical professionals. Typically, more than half of these complaints come from consumers, with the rest originating from other state agencies, authorities in other states, or insurers, associations, and health care institutions.
For physician, a suspended or revoked medical license means no longer being able to practice medicine and earn a living. If you engage in activities that place your professional license at risk, it is important to be proactive and take steps to rectify the situation before it is too late.
