RE: Your complaint against David P Dorn V.M.D.
File No.: 04-57-03785
The Prosecution Division Of The Bureau Of Professional And Occupational Affairs, Leagal Office, on behalf of The State Board Of Veterinary Medicine, has completed its inquiry into the complaint that you filed against David P Dorn, V.M.D. After careful review of your complaint, we found insufficient evidence of a violation of the applicable licensing law. Accordingly, no action will be taken against Dr. Dorn, and the complaint has been closed. Your complaint was sent to one of the commonwealth's experts in small animal veterinary medicine. After extensive review of the veterinary records in this matter, that expert determined that Dr. Dorn did not deviate from the standards of acceptable and prevailing veterinary medical practice.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with the state board of veterinary medicine. The information you provided will be kept on file and reference to it has been entered into an informational database so that it can be used to determine if there is a pattern of problems with individual physicians. Although the complaint is being closed, the information will be available for use in the future, if needed.

Not agreeing with the decision Mr. Swift had made, I refiled the complaint. This time the decision was made within months not years. The following is the letter I recieved.
