Effective June 27, 2010, a new regulation, mandated by Business and Professions Code section 138, will go into effect requiring physicians in California to inform their patients that they are licensed by the Medical Board of California, and include the board’s contact information. The information must read as follows:
NOTICE TO CONSUMERS: Medical doctors are licensed and regulated by the Medical Board of California (800) 633-2322 www.mbc.ca.gov
The purpose of this new requirement (Title 16, California Code of Regulations section 1355.4) is to inform consumers where to go for information or with a complaint about California medical doctors.
Dr. Brenner has held an unrestricted license as a physician and surgeon issued by the Medical Board of California since 2002.
