He is also looking up records in various State Medical boards.  This can be helpful to perhaps view and find history to make sure you are where you want to be as sometimes it takes a long time before something is perhaps legally done in the cases of fraud, etc.  Nobody likes fraud.  I wonder what one of these maps would look like if we mapped current and past members of Congress?  Ok forget I said that just me speaking out loud and check out this Google Map below.  BD

Antidote has been on an alphabetical tour of state medical boards this year. As summer fades, I thought it would be a good time to pull over. To show where we’ve been, I created this Google map, and I will update it weekly.

In most states, detailed information about a doctor’s disciplinary, criminal or malpractice histories is either nonexistent or heavily redacted. The worst states, in alphabetical order, are: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois and Kansas.
