Florida doctor oversight rapped
Miami Herald, April 23, 2008
Ratings from consumer group Public Citizen showed the Florida Board of Medicine disciplined doctors slightly more often than in a previous study, but still ranks in the bottom half of states. Public Citizen is concerned that many states are lenient in not disciplining problem doctors, and as a result endangering the lives and health of patients. The Florida Board of Medicine has repeatedly insisted it's only doing its job in treating physicians fairly.
