I am having trouble opening a Public file. I only see the first page.
The file is probably being opened by QuickTime. You need to uncheck the TIFF Mime Type in QuickTime. In QuickTime, click on: Edit, then Preferences, then QuickTime Preferences, then Browser(tab), then Mime Settings…(button), then Images - Still images files and then TIFF. This should allow you to view the entire document.
Is there a limit in the number of publications I enter on the Publications page?
Licensees are asked to limit their cited publications to peer reviewed published work; choose articles that are clearly indicative of expertise in your area of practice.
I do not have a practice address. Does this mean my home address will be published?
No, the address you select as ‘public’ will appear on our website. If you select the practice address to be public and there is no data entered, the city and state from your home address will be posted.
I recently renewed my license, so you should have all the required information. Do I need to enter the data again for the Licensee Information pages?

However, you have the opportunity to enter additional information on your Licensee Information Pages to market yourself and your practice. If any required information changes, you must update that information on your Licensee Information Pages within 60 days.
