Is there a central database that lists lawsuits that have been filed against a doctor

Individuals should use state resources such as state medical boards, state departments of health services and court records to assist in discovering any charges against a health care provider, suggests Nolo. Many of the state resources are free to use and are often available online. Another option is to contact health insurance providers, as some maintain lists of physicians with poor results or lawsuits. The National Committee for Quality Assurance rates doctors according to the quality of care they provide patients and may also have information regarding lawsuits against health care providers.
