Information about health care providers is on the agency website. Click on "Provider Credential Search" on the left hand side of the Department of Health home page (www.doh.wa.gov).

The site includes information about a health care provider's license status, the expiration and renewal date of their credential, disciplinary actions and copies of legal documents issued after July 1998.

This information is also available by calling 360-236-4700. Consumers who think a health care provider acted unprofessionally are also encouraged to call and report their complaint.
