Details of your doctor’s disciplinary history are on the medical board’s website, but getting to the pertinent information can be a frustrating process. Here’s how to navigate it.
The first step to checking a doctor’s background is entering the name on the Medical Board of California’s license verification search engine. (Medical Board of California)
The first page of the results shows whether the doctor’s license is current and where they went to medical school. In Nadjmabadi’s case, the only indication that he has been disciplined is the notation “Probation completed.” (Medical Board of California)
To get detailed information, you must scroll down the second page and know that the key information is behind a link labeled “Decision.” (Medical Board of California)
There are three long legal documents. The important stuff is in the last document. (Medical Board of California)
It is not until page 13 of that document that you find the board’s description of what Nadjmabadi did to his victims, starting with a 19-year-old woman in 2005. (Medical Board of California)
