Check your doctor’s license at the South Carolina Medical Board’s license lookup. All professions are found here – medical doctors, osteopaths and some non-doctor professions as well, such as physician assistant (PA). Be very careful in reading the asterisk * in the Specialty column – if it comes Before the specialty code, it means one thing (in residency training), and if it’s After the code, it means something quite different (board certified). Consumers must stay alert. Site by the SC Dept. of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
