Complaint Procedures

You have the right to file a complaint with our agency. The OSBMLS has jurisdiction over the following professionals: Medical Doctors (MD), Physician's Assistants (PA), Physical Therapists (PT), Physical Therapy Assistants (TA), Occupational Therapists (OT), Occupational Therapy Assistants (OA), Anesthesiologist Assistants (AA), Athletic Trainers (AT), Registered Electrologists (RE), Respiratory Care Practitioners (RC), Licensed Dietitians (LD), Pedorthists (LPED), Orthotists/Prosthetists (LO/LPR), and Radiologist Assistants (RA). We also contract our investigative services for Podiatrists (DPM) and Perfusionists (LP).

Please answer all applicable questions on the complaint form and be as specific as possible. Any applicable questions not answered may result in a delay in the resolution of your complaint. Please provide as much detail as possible as our decision for further action will be based on the facts as presented in your complaint.

You will receive acknowledgment of our receipt of your complaint. Your complaint will then be reviewed by the Medical Director and Executive Director for possible violations of the Oklahoma Medical Practice Act and the Board's rules and regulations. You will then be notified of the results of that review.

Should your complaint be assigned to a Board investigator, you will be notified of that investigator's name and telephone extension for follow-up.

Should you change addresses before your complaint is resolved, please notify this office so we may contact you with the results of any review, investigation or disciplinary hearing.

This agency is an administrative licensing agency and has no jurisdiction over persons not holding one of our professional licenses. If you feel someone is practicing without a license, you should contact the District Attorney's office in that county for criminal prosecution.

If your complaint concerns other professions or facilities, you should contact the appropriate licensing agency:
