The Louisiana Physical Therapy Board (the "Board") is vested with the obligation to regulate the practice of physical therapy in the State of Louisiana through licensure, practice requirements and prohibitions, and disciplinary actions against its licensees. Additionally, the Board is empowered with the authority to seek injunctive relief against unlicensed individuals or entities who violate the Louisiana Physical Therapy Practice Act, LA. R.S. 37:2401 - 37:2425.
In complying with this obligation to regulate the practice of physical therapy, the Board is required to investigate all complaints of wrongdoing which it receives. The Board takes all complaints seriously.
Please complete and submit this online complaint form. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt from a Board staff member. A panel will be designated to investigate the complaint, which is typically composed of one or more board members, the executive director, investigator and legal counsel. Board staff will keep you informed of progress of the complaint periodically, but you may inquire about the status of your complaint at any time.
During the investigation, you may be contacted to assist in the investigation by providing additional information. Complaints may be settled informally by the Board without a formal hearing, or with a formal hearing. An investigation may be dismissed if there is absence of adequate, credible evidence or for other reasons which are justifiable for dismissal. When an investigation is dismissed, you will receive a letter explanation for dismissal of the complaint.
