When the Board receives a signed notarized complaint against a Minnesota doctor, it first determines whether the allegations are under the jurisdiction of the Board. If the Board does have jurisdiction then the doctor is informed of the allegations and may be provided with the opportunity to respond to those allegations. Other relevant information, such as medical records, are also collected. Then the investigative materials are provided to the Board’s Complaint Review Committee which decides whether or not action should be taken against the physician. The entire process can take just a few months or last well over a year depending on the complexity of the case.
