Dr Samuel Wurster was reprimanded in NC

Dr. Samuel Wurster was reprimanded by the North Carolina Medical Board on 08-15-2007. A young college student died in Raleigh, N.C.

Why doesn’t the state of Illinois include this information on the public file?

SAMUEL HOWARD WURSTER MD
License Status ACTIVE Chicago, IL
License # 036-115253
Original Issue Date 02/16/2006
Current Expiration Date 07/31/2011

Discipline in Other States (ONLY the most recent 5 years)
None reported

I am certainly not suggesting that Dr. Wurster is a bad physician. But, patients should be able to rely on the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for accurate information.

It would be interesting to know whether this error is clerical on the part of IDFPR or an omission by Dr. Wurster on his application for a medical license in Illinois.
