Questionable Doctors

Questionable Doctors, Web site review by Erica Sagrans
A new Web site alerts consumers to the "questionable" histories of doctors nationwide. A project of Public Citizen's Health Research Group, questionabledoctors.com is "the only comprehensive, publicly available databank that contains information on doctors who have been disciplined by state medical boards and federal agencies in the past 10 years." Medical mistakes kill tens of thousands of people each year, the site argues, so the public should have access to data on disciplinary actions taken for medical incompetence, misprescribing drugs, sexual misconduct, criminal convictions, and ethical lapses by doctors. If you live in one of the 27 states the site covers, you can browse the database of doctors for free, and access full disciplinary reports for a small fee.
