The Medical Board of California is charged with protecting the public from dangerous doctors, but it is failing that consumer protection mission. Doctors have the majority of seats on the Board, with 8, while the public has only 7 (and two of those are vacant). With doctors in charge, the Medical Board lets negligent doctors continue to practice and harm Californians with no accountability. Too often, patient complaints about physician negligence are dismissed without the patient ever even being interviewed, and with no consequences for the doctors who cause harm. One way we can start to restore the public's trust is by adding public members to the Medical Board to give it a public member majority. Please send your legislator an email urging them to make the Medical Board answer to the public, not doctors, by adding at least two public members to the Board.
