Most healthcare providers are required to be licensed to work in Nevada. All healthcare providers who prescribe controlled substances and medications are required to be licensed by a State of Nevada licensing board. These Boards also ensure that the licensees of each board are practicing within their relevant statutes and regulations. These Boards have the statutory authority to take disciplinary action against their licensees if they are acting inappropriately.
Who oversees your healthcare provider?
These licensing boards are empowered to protect Nevada citizens, and if you feel that your medical provider is not acting appropriately relative to the prescribing of medications, you can file a complaint with his/her licensing board:
