Formal Hearing for Contested Cases and Possible Outcomes

Disciplinary proceedings to enforce the behavior listed above are considered contested cases, and the licensee has a right to a hearing.  The hearing is conducted by a majority of the board, and the president normally serves as the presiding officer.

When the Board finds that a chiropractor or applicant is guilty of any offense described above, it may:

  1. Permanently revoke the license;
  2. Suspend the license;
  3. Refuse to grant a license;
  4. Censure the chiropractor;
  5. Issue a letter of reprimand;
  6. Place the chiropractor on probationary status.
