In this, retro prospective study we raise study questions and examine them by pertinent methods to ascertain the extent of medical crimes and the factors increasing these crimes. The statistical population included wrongdoer clinical physicians between years 2009 and 2011 and 2002 and 2008 in Isfahan province in Iran. The researcher studied 158 conviction cases in medical crimes and interviewed with law professors, and judiciary judges for finding the root of occurrence of these crimes. The main reason of increasing these crimes is existing gaps in law and inconsistency between crime and punishment and the results derived from the study of 158 cases showed that one sixth of all of studied cases were derived from recidivism by physicians. Examining the results, it has been revealed that in 2009 the general practitioners have first rank of medical crimes in Isfahan province in Iran and in 2010 dentists placed at first rank of these crimes in one of the provinces in Iran.
