List of Doctors

You are providing a wonderful service in publishing the names of physicians who have been disciplined by the Medical Board of California (March 24). This knowledge is crucial in allowing patient choice. However, it is incomplete as it doesn't mention the doctors' business names (i.e. doing business as "John Doe Medical Institute") or their affiliations (their HMOs).

Why don't you publish names of contractors (building, roofing, construction, etc.) who have been sanctioned by the state contractors board? It seems that they aren't publicly exposed for poor management, failure to pay subcontractors (in which case a lien is placed upon your property), faulty construction or for using drugs or alcohol on the job.
