The North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB) recently issued an alert urging physicians and physician assistants to beware of telephone calls from individuals claiming to be investigators from the Board. The callers have been saying the physician or PA is under investigation and asking for personal or financial information. Such calls are not legitimate.
The NCMB does NOT contact licensees by telephone to give notice of pending action or investigation. If you receive such a suspicious call, hang up and do not release any information.
If you have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
