Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine
137 State House Station
Augusta, ME 04333 - 0137
(207) 287 - 3601
Complaints (888) 365-9964

Receipt of your complaint will be acknowledged by Board staff. Your complaint will be reviewed to determine that it is a complaint over which the Board has jurisdiction. The complaint will be investigated, which will include obtaining a written response from the licensee. When the investigation is complete, the complaint file will be reviewed by the Board. Since at this stage the Board review process deals only with written documents, it is very important for your complaint to contain all the facts, as well as all your concerns. At the time of its first review, the Board may dismiss the complaint, request further investigation or order either an Informal Conference or an Adjudicatory Hearing. As a complainant, you would be able to attend the Informal Conference and/or the Adjudicatory Hearing.
