Now, we focus strictly upon psychiatrists and have expanded outside Florida to cover the nation.
We’d like to warmly and sincerely thank those of you who helped in the last decade. We’ve gotten to know many of you only through e-mail and online postings. Maybe we can thank you in person sometime. As is our custom, we would like to ask you once again for your opinion on how to do something. How do you propose we celebrate the Ten Year Anniversary of PsychSearch.net? Any really good ideas?
In ten more years we hope the website is no longer needed and is just a curious relic of times gone by.
But for now, our work continues and your goodwill is very much appreciated.
The Miami Herald, in 2004, announced that we had arrived:
A new website, www.psychsearch.net, has been launched to help journalists, law enforcement, insurance investigators and citizens gain ready access to governmental reports on mental health practitioners in the state of Florida.
The website contains disciplinary records from the state Department of Health on psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage counselors and clinical social workers. These reports cover medical incompetence, misprescribing drugs, sexual misconduct, criminal convictions, ethical lapses and other offenses.
When this phase of report gathering is complete, the site will expand to include reports from various law enforcement agencies, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Food and Drug Administration and Medicare/Medicaid.
