Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Pennsylvania.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

Healthy Gums, Healthy Teeth, Healthy Bite
Optimum oral health is achieved only if the gums, teeth, and bite are healthy.
Healthy Gums: So what defines "healthy" gums? Healthy gums are pink in color, firm when palpated, stippled or having an orange peel texture in appearance, and cover the roots of the teeth. Healthy gums are not painful and do not bleed or exude pus when brushing or flossing. Healthy gums are really the first building block of optimum oral health.
Healthy Teeth: Healthy teeth are free from decay and are aligned in a way that allows proper cleaning by brushing and flossing. Healthy teeth may have dental restorations (i.e. fillings or crowns), but these restorations have margins (or edges) that are sealed to the tooth, and again, are completely cleansable by brushing and flossing. Healthy teeth show no signs of wear from biting, and have form that allows for smiling and eating.
Healthy Bite: Optimum oral health can only be maintained over a lifetime if the teeth function in a system that allows for even contacts of both the teeth and jaw joints upon chewing. When teeth are not hitting evenly, teeth can crack, break, or become loose. When the teeth and jaw joints do not work in harmony, joints can become painful, lock open or closed, or suffer arthritic deterioration.The goal for each patient in this practice is to achieve optimum oral health!
