About the Medical Inspector General (MEDIG)

Your command should be your first point of contact if you are cons​idering filing a complaint. This will save you time because when you submit your complaint to DoD IG or the Naval Inspector General, your complaint is forwarded to the local IG for investigation. 
If you are unable to resolve your issue using your chain of command, you may consider contacting your local IG. The IG will review your complaint to determine whether or not the issue is a matter for the IG. The IG will acknowledge receipt of your complaint and tell you if an investigation will be conducted or explain why your issue is not appropriate for investigation.
