In contrast to the FDA which has no authority over doctors, the state medical boards do have enforcement powers over doctors. If you have a complaint against a LASIK surgeon in Florida, please fill out this form and send it in.

This information is also under the "Using your 1st amendment rights" forum.

http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/enforcem ... e_csu.html

Examples of complaints investigated include:

Practicing below minimum standards or negligence
Impairment/medical condition
Advertising violation
Sexual misconduct with a patient
Misfilled/mislabeled prescription
Failure to release patient records

Examples of complaints that may not be investigated include:

Fee disputes (broken or missed appointments)
Billing disputes
Personality conflicts
Bedside manner or rudeness of practitioners

Complaint form:
General Healthcare Professions Complaint form (pdf - 158kb)

http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/enforcem ... medUCF.pdf

Complaints should be clearly written or typed, and signed.

You may print a complaint form using Adobe Reader or request a form by calling (888) 419-3456 or (850) 245-4339. In order to avoid delays in the process, please complete all sections of the form and attach the requested information. The complaint form contains an Authorization for Release of Patient Information, which must be signed by the patient or his/her legal representative. The signature must be witnessed or notarized.

Complaints should be mailed to:
Department of Health
Consumer Services Unit
4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin C75
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3275

Patients in other states can report their surgeon to their state medical board.
