The professional licensing board has the authority to license and regulate the professionals under its jurisdiction. Protection of the public is the boards' primary responsibility. 
You can file a complaint:


All complaints received in the office are given a case number and are treated as confidential even to the person complaining and the licensee.
A letter of receipt is mailed to the person filing the complaint.
After reviewing the investigation, the Board may decide to:
  • Close the case;
  • Close the case by writing a confidential letter of education to the licensee;
  • Make a probable cause determination and proceed to a Statement of Charges against the licensee.
A Statement of Charges can be viewed in the Discipline and Public Actions page for each board.
