Report: Few complaints against physicians result in discipline

AP/Chicago Tribune, January 28, 2008
Wisconsin Medical Examining Board records show that only 213 of the 2,400 complaints filed about physicians in the state from 2002 and 2006 resulted in some kind of discipline. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also says in a report that the board was slow to look into complaints, and keeps many of its investigations secret.
