Contact state medical board.


It sounds like defamation [libel], however; unless you have tangible economic damages, you dont have a case. File a complaint with the Board of Ethics.

The above is general information only and is not legal advice. The information provided does not form an attorney-client relationship, and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. I am not your attorney until we sign a retainer agreement.
