General Information Concerning Data Downloads


Under Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, the Department of Health (DOH) is required to make available for inspection and copying any public record regardless of physical format, which is not otherwise exempted from public access by general law. The department fulfills this requirement by providing copies of electronic records to the public.

Section 119.01(b), F.S., requires only that the agency provide electronic data in some common format such as, but not limited to, the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) text format. Therefore, the download files provided on this page are formatted as ASCII text, pipe delimited.

Financial information, medical information, school transcripts, examination questions, answers, papers, grades and grading keys, which are confidential and exempt from s. 119.07(1), F.S.,. will be withheld pursuant to Chapter 455.232, Florida Statutes. Social Security numbers will also be redacted pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 405(c)(2)(C)(viii)(I).

General Information Practitioner Profiling


This site contains self-reported information from licensed Medical Physicians, Osteopathic Physicians, Podiatric Physicians, Chiropractic Physicians, and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners as specified under Section 456.041, Section 456.039, and Section 456.0391 of Florida Statues (Laws).

The practitioner profile summarizes data submitted by the practitioner that has not been verified by the Department unless otherwise indicated. The physicians filed the data with the Division of Medical Quality Assurance as required by law. Responsibility for providing the data lies with the practitioner. Medical Malpractice information is not maintained by the Division of Medical Quality Assurance as a part of the profiling documents. Civil medical malpractice payment information may be obtained from the county in which the practitioner is working. Please be advised that the practitioner may have disciplinary action and liability claims that occurred more than 10 years ago that may not be published on the practitioner profile. Additionally, federal criminal history information is not available to the public and thus, is not listed here.

Certain information is required to be available on all profiled practitioners. Such information includes:
  • about the practitioner's education and training, including other health related degrees, professional and post graduate training specialty
  • about the practitioner's current practice and mailing addresses
  • about the practitioner's staff privileges and faculty appointments
  • about the practitioner's reported financial responsibility
  • about legal actions taken against the practitioner
  • about board final disciplinary action taken against the practitioner
  • on any liability claims filed against Podiatric Physicians which exceed $5,000
  • on any liability claims filed against allopathic and osteopathic physicians which exceed $100,000 Neither

Neither the Department of Health nor the State of Florida accepts any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, timeliness, completeness, or usefulness of this information.
