Disciplinary Actions

The WV Board of Physical Therapy has the responsibility of investigating any wrong-doings of licensed Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants. We take any allegation of illegal or immoral behavior very seriously and investigate any complaints as quickly and thoroughly as possible. In the event that a PT/PTA has been found to have violated any of the Rules or Regulations pertaining to their profession, the Board will issue a penalty appropriate for the infraction. All disciplinary actions issued by the Board are a matter of public record.

THE LISTING BELOW MAY NOT BE A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL PAST OR CURRENT DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS. CASE FILES THAT ARE OPEN AND BEING INVESTIGATED DO NOT GET LISTED UNTIL THE CASE HAS BEEN RESOLVED OR CLOSED.

For full detail - - including the full violation and penalty - - for any of the disciplinary actions listed below, click on the individual's name.

A current verification of an individual PT's or PTA's license may be obtained via the "PT/PTA License and AT Registration Search and Verification" page within the "Public" tab.

A LISTING OF ACTIVELY LICENSED PT'S/PTA'S CANNOT BE USED FOR VERIFICATION PURPOSES NOR CAN IT BE COPIED OR DISTRIBUTED. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT INTERESTED PARTIES ASSUME THAT ALL ACTIVE LICENSEES ON A LISTING ARE IN GOOD STANDING. WE DO RECOMMEND THAT REQUESTS BE MADE FOR INDIVIDUAL VERIFICATIONS AS PER THE PARAGRAPH ABOVE.
