STEP 2: Has the doctor been disciplined by the State of New York?

Using the 6-Digit Medical License Number, go to the New York State website for Professional Medical Conduct and Physician Discipline.

In the box that says “License Number,” type in the 6-Digit Medical License Number.

Any action taken against a doctor’s license it will appear here.

STEP 3: How many times has a doctor been sued for medical malpractice in New York State?

In the State of New York everybody who tries to sue a doctor must first obtain a Certificate of Merit.

Therefore, every time there is a lawsuits against a doctor in New York it means that the patient, the lawyer, and an Independent Medical Expert concludes that malpractice was committed.

Also, remember that bringing a medical malpractice case is both expensive and time-consuming.

Therefore, I will not bring a lawsuit against any doctor unless I truly believe there was malpractice.
