  • Other  (5/17/2010)
  • Action Taken: Letter of Concern
  • Allegation of Complaint: Dr. Randy Owen Kritzer; License # 39005

    Nature of Complaint:

    The North Carolina Medical Board has reviewed information regarding a claim payment made on the physician's behalf in September 2008 involving care provided in June 2005. The Board is concerned about the physician's involvement in the care and treatment of the patient. The Board notes that the physician was one of several physicians involved in the diagnosis and care of the patient and there is disagreement over the nature and amount of the physician's involvement in this case, specifically whether the physician was asked to provide a neurosurgical consultation when the patient first exhibited signs of spinal canal dysfunction. It is the Board's position that if there was confusion about what was being asked of the physician, it was his responsibility to clarify his role and responsibilites.

    Action Taken:

    The physician has been issued a public letter of concern by the North Carolina Medical Board.
