in order to separate the best surgeons from the dangerous ones
What is the Best Site to Find the Error Rate of Various Surgeons?
Doctor Answers (1)
Google and the state board
Professional reprimands or disciplinary actions against doctors in general can be found on your states medical board website. Also, patients who have had bad experiences with surgeons inevitably leave bad reveiews/feedback. Just searching the surgeons name through google will pull up both good and bad reviews. The combination of the two should give you a good idea if the surgeon you are considering has less than desirable results.
All the best,
