9 Viewpoints Interactions with DOHMH Professionalism of Inspectors o Have the inspector treat the business owner fairly and with respect. Relationship with DOHMH o I feel scared [to contact DOHMH], they have the power and can make your life a misery. So why bother. Communication with DOHMH o I didn't know that I can contact DOHMH. o Generally, we have to leave several messages before someone gets back to you sometimes weeks later. Or you have to go waste literally a half work day waiting to see someone at the office. Experience with DOHMH versus Health Regulators in Other Cities o Yes, in Las Vegas, the Health Department is tough but act as your partner to ensure food safety. In New York they act like were the enemy.
