Hi, I have a question to ask about something which is regarding complaints about a doctor. I was seeing a doctor who is a chiropractor and I was going to him for about a year due to scoliosis. This doctor rather than help my situation he made my scoliosis curvature worse. He’s not accepting anything we said to him about what he’s done and so far we have avoided him but we are not done with him in what he’s done. My own doctor who is my neurologist told me take legal actions but from here it’s financial concern for us. I’m looking for other ways to report him but I thought I ask for your help here to know what other kind of ways there are to report him? This is something I need to take care of as soon as possible. I really appreciate Your opinion.

Hello, Melissa6666. Thank you for posting.

If you experience unprofessional conduct or inadequate care at the hands of a doctor, you can file a complaint with the State Medical Board in your state. However, chiropractors do not hold medical degrees, so they aren't medical doctors. In that case, you would need to file a complaint with the Board of Chiropractic Examiners in your state.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I’m aware they are not MD but contacting the state medical board or board of chiropractor examiners as you’re saying is it reasonable and the right way to deal with such thing? Through this I’m able to report the doctor without paying for anything? Please let me know soon.

Hi again,

There should be no cost involved in filing a complaint. You are not hiring a lawyer. When you call the Board of Chiropractic Examiners, ask what filing a complaint entails.
