Checking License Status of Your Plastic Surgeon - Breast Augmentation & Breast Implants

Checking License Status of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons

Find a board certified plastic surgeon

There are several ways to check the status of a doctor's medical license. Every state allows you to send for a status report using regular postal mail. Many states also provide license and disciplinary information over the phone. Some states have toll-free numbers, while others make you pay for the call. A comprehensive list of the mailing addresses and phone numbers for all state boards follows at the bottom of this page, but you may want to check to see if your state is represented in online resources list below before you use the "old-fashioned approach". The links below take you to web-based systems which give you instant online access to the state licensing board information.

The depth of information varies by state. Some states provide only license verification, while others provide information on malpractice judgements and investigations.

All States:

You can verify certificates (board certification) by using the doctor's name at the American Board of Medical Specialties' (ABMS) Certified Doctor Verification Site: http://www.abms.org.

Multiple States:

Association of State Medical Board Executive Directors operates the AIM DocFinder which currently lists online licensing information and status for health professionals in many states. The states that have online pages will give you an online status of the doctors licensing and disciplinary status. The AIM DocFinder has online listings for many states so be sure to check this link too http://www.docboard.org.
