DENVER — Contact7 Investigates has spent a lot of time exploring a state’s offerings for consumers to determine a licenses and disciplinary histories of a people who offer medical and mental health caring in Colorado.

After all, we’ve spent months exposing people but licenses indicted of impersonating health caring professionals. 

Here’s a step-by-step beam on how we can do your task before we trust someone with your health.

If we know a professional’s name and a contention they are protected in, start with a state’s Health Professional Check:

Click “Search for a Profile” afterwards form in a person’s name and name their profession:

If a chairman you’re looking for has ever been licensed, they should come adult in this search. You can click on a form that shows when a chairman perceived their license, if it’s active, when it is set to expire, their permit number, and a inventory of any house or disciplinary actions.

If we still can’t find someone, ask them their permit number. They should have no problem providing it, as a information is open record.  

If we think something competence be wrong and someone competence be unlicensed, or we feel we have not been treated appropriately, we can file a censure online:
