My partial 2016 letter (limited space here) to Nevada Medical Board. They did not respond.
[Note: I'm currently posting here on this consumper complaint board because my Google post gets removed from the NV Med Board's business search pop-up. Note: There are zero google reviews posted there for the NV Med Board? Do those posts get deleted?
Dear Mr. Rachakonda, Mr. Heitt, and other Investigative Committee members of the Nevada Medical Board:
Is the Nevada Medical Board truly available to help the consumer or not?
You write that my case is closed but you provide no specific findings in your investigation.
NRS 630.11 states there must be "reasonable basis for the complaint." A medical expert in my case determined that the facial "damage is real" as shown in [my dated] photographs with "pronounced change"....
The Board apparently decided to overlook this fact and gave no reason why. Please explain why the Board chose to do nothing with this information....patients will be harmed and providers and overseers who are expected to uphold a standard of ethics will not be held accountable.
I sought treatment from a licensed medical practitioner for one acne spot and was treated [excessively in areas other than target spot] by two technicians with no licenses....I request your responses:
NRS 630.305 involving:
1) aiding practice by unlicensed person. I still have not been provided information from the Board or the dermatology office about either technician's certification/licensing information. (The Board finds that acceptable??)
2) delegating responsibility to unqualified person (unqualified for whatever reason--be it psychological, wrongful intent, drug-related, etc.)
1) supervising physician is responsible for all medical activities of his or her physician assistant
NAC 630.360 involving:
performance of authorized medical services; identification; misrepresentation
--physician's assistant authorized to perform must be
1) commensurate with education, training, experience and level of competence
2) shall wear at all times while on duty a placard, plate, or insigne which identifies him or her as a physician's assistant
3) no physician's assistant may represent himself or herself in any manner which would tend to mislead the general public or the patients
NRS 630.306 involving:
1) deceptive conduct (such as a consent form/contract which does not disclose all possible facial changes from lasering job, or the fact that consent form does not comply with its promise that "photographs will be taken....Photographs may be used for educational purposes," yet neither of these dermatology office claims/promises occurred.
2) practice beyond scope of license
3) certain operation of medical facility [which would include laser machines]
4) engaging in unsafe or unprofessional conduct
5) failure to supervise medical assistant adequately
6) intoxication (was the technician under the influence of a drug, I wonder?)
NRS 630.3062 involving:
1) failure to allow inspection and copying of medical records (dermatology office put up barriers to my requests)
2) failure to file and obstructing required report (dermatology office unethically would not provide my lawyer with their malpractice policy information and I was therefore unable to proceed in pursuing a legal case)
NRS 630.3065 involving:
1) failure to perform legal obligation (as stated above, dermatology office would not provide my lawyer with their malpractice insurance information; consequently, no legal action could be taken on my part)
2) faliure to comply with law, subpoena or order
NRS 630.3067 involving:
1) insurer or physician required to report certain information concerning malpractice (as already stated, dermatology office obstructed my efforts to file a complaint)
When patients suffer from sub-standard medical practices, their complaints may be covered up by those in power rather than be adequately addressed....Nevada is lax in its lasering regulations in comparison to other states. JAMA and the AAD appear to be scrutinizing the evolving "treatment" practice of lasering and its hazards and its unknown, unreported, and non-researched consequences. The ultimate goal is that all doctors honor their patients' trust and that they act ethically and responsibly in caring for their patients.
