If that doesn’t work, you can put forward your complaint to the independent complaints officer at Stichting DOKhThat’s an external organisation completely separate from Karmenta, that also handles complaints form other healthcare organisations. Karmenta has made a contract for this purpose with Stichting DOKh in Alkmaar:

You have a complaint about your doctor. What now? Complaints Procedure DOKh

A good relationship between you and your doctor is important. Unfortunately sometimes things can happen that disrupt this relationship. You are unsatisfies, you have a complaint. This brochure gives you information on what you can do if you have a problem with your doctor. You’ll read what the options are to rectify the complaint and in what way the DOKh handles your complaints.

Fix it together

Try to fix the issue with a personal conversation with your doctor first. If that doesn’t work, your doctor will put you in contact with the complaints officer at DOKh. Offcourse, you can also call DOKh yourself

Receiving your complaint

The complaints officer at DOKh is independent and will you for a solution with you. Within 1 week after making your complaint at DOKh the officer will get in contact with you. 

The officer will try to mediate your complaint if you are open to it.

Mediating your complaint

Many complaints can be solved through a conversation (in person or on the phone). During the mediation talks both you and your doctor will be able to give explanations or the event(s). When both sides start understanding each other more, usually the situation will be workable again. The ultimate goal of this mediation is to fix the relationship between you and your doctor.

Verdict formulated by doctor

To complete the complaint procedure the doctor is obligated to hand in a verdict on the complaint to you within 6 weeks of making the complaint. A verdict refers to a written explanation for what decisions the doctor made leading up to the complaint and what (potential) actions need to be taken. The 6 week period can be extended by a maximum of 4 weeks, which you will notified of in a timely manner.

If both parties are satisfied with the verdict, than with that the complaint is dealt with. If you are not satisfied and want to go further in the complaints procedure, we talk of a dispute. After the verdict you have 6 months to decide if you want to hand in a dispute with the dispute resolution body.


  • The complaints officers assistance, the mediation and the complaints procedure do not cost you anything.
  • Mediation is only successful and complete if both parties are in agreement.
  • During mediation, mutual trust and respect is assumed.
  • Every one involved in the procedure handle your privacy with the upmost care and have a confidentialty agreement.
  • The full procedures can be downloaded below.

Can you not find a solution with the complaints officer?

In case you cannot find an agreeable solution, despite the mediation talks, the officer will aid you in taking any potential next steps. Your complaint will then become a dispute and it will be handled by the next body, the dispute resolution body at DOKh. For more information about this we will refer you to the information on our website, to the folder: you have a dispute with your doctor.
