I am surprised at your lack of astute research! Florida does indeed
have a method for patients to file a complaint. It is on the state
website, I directed you to this when you requested information. Your
comments show a bias against licensure. There have been numerous
complaints made by patients against licensed individuals. These are
investigated, and if probable cause is found disipline is enforced. If
probable cause for discipline in not warrented but the panel feels the
practitioner needs to be made aware of shortcomings this is done.
The State has an agressive ad campaign to inform consumers of where they
can file complaints, either for unlicensed practice or for resolution of
I doubt the other licensed states don't have a similar mechanism.
