Filing a Complaint

The Board from time to time receives anonymous complaints against practices or licensees whose names are not included.  The Board is powerless to investigate complaints unless the name of the practice and/or licensee is provided. Please complete the complaint form in its entirety. 

The Board reminds licensees that COMAR Code of Ethics states, “The physical therapist and physical therapist assistant shall report to the Board of Physical Therapy Examiners all information that indicates a person is allegedly performing, or aiding and abetting, the illegal or unsafe practice of physical therapy.”
