Common Illinois Medical Board Complaints

Each year, approximately 3,000 complaints are lodged before the Illinois Medical Disciplinary Board against doctors of medicine, physician's assistants, doctors of osteopathy, and other medical professionals. Over half of these complaints usually come from consumers. The rest come from other state agencies, authorities in other states, and various sources such as insurers, associations, and health care institutions.

There are over 40 different grounds for disciplinary action against medical professionals, and in any given year, complaints are typically filed covering almost every category. Among the most common reasons for complaints before the Illinois Medical Board include:

  • Unprofessional Conduct (e.g., fraudulent insurance claim filings, altering records, false or misleading advertising, and DUI or other types of criminal arrests or convictions)
  • Substandard Care (e.g., misdiagnoses, treatment delays, poor treatment, etc.)
  • Prescription Issues (e.g., overprescribing/underprescribing and violations of drug laws)
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Substance Abuse/DUI
  • Practicing without a License (or aiding/abetting unlicensed practice)
  • Failure to Pay Child Support

When a complaint is lodged, the information is reviewed, and a decision is made whether or not to begin an investigation or close the case. After an investigation, the Complaint Committee of the Illinois Medical Disciplinary Board decides whether or not to close the case or forward it for prosecution.
