new york physician license defense lawyers

New York Physician License Defense Lawyers The state medical Board in New York regulates medical doctors as well as other health care professionals. They will also investigate complaints that are made against a physician. If you received a complaint, then it is time for you to contact an attorney.

Why Someone May Be Disciplined by the State Medical Board

Drug Diversions

There are several ways that drug diversions can occur. There may have been an error in the Pyxis system. A drug diversion can also occur if waste is not disposed of properly. Additionally, stealing narcotics from employers or hospitals is another example of drug diversion.

Our attorneys have represented several physicians who had been facing drug diversion allegations. In some cases, we are able to resolve the issue before any disciplinary action is taken. You do not want to speak to the impairment program without talking to one of our attorneys first.

Medical Malpractice

There is a standard of care that every physician is required to provide to their patients. The New York Medical Board receives several complaints each year regarding the failure to diagnose and treat a condition properly. This may include things such as prescribing the wrong medication, not properly maintaining records and not communicating to patients properly.


Driving under the influence has ended many careers. It could cause you to lose your license if your case is not handled the right way. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is not speaking to an attorney first. Our attorneys strive to protect physicians’ licenses. It doesn’t matter whether you are currently facing DUI charges or have prior charges and been disciplined for it.

Positive Drug Test

If you have tested positive for illicit drugs, then it will be reported to the medical board. They will immediately take action. This could result in getting your license suspended. Many physicians surrender their license before they even talk to an attorney. Our attorneys have been able to help physicians keep their medical license.

Inappropriate Relationships With Patients

The medical board also investigates claims of inappropriate relationships between patients and doctors. This includes things such as sexual assault and non-consensual touching that is done under the guise of performing a medical service. You will need a medical defense lawyer immediately if you have been accused of having inappropriate relationships with patients.

Possible Consequences of Medical Complaints

No Formal Action

There is a possibility that no formal action will be taken against you. The board will let you know if no action will be taken against you.

Private Action

You may be punished privately for your actions. For example, you may be required to complete additional training or education.

Public Action

Public action will be taken against you if the board determines that you have violated the law.

Letter of Concern

A letter of concern may be private or public. You will be warned about your actions. The letter may also state things that can happen in the future if you commit another infraction.


You may get a public reprimand for your actions.

License Restrictions

You are still allowed, but there will be restrictions placed on what you can and cannot do.

License Suspension

Your license will be suspended for a certain amount of time. You will have to get your license reinstated in order to be able to practice again.

Medical License Revocation

It is possible for you to get your license revoked if you commit an egregious act. You can also get your license revoked for multiple infractions. It is possible for you to get your license reinstated, but you will have to go through a rigorous process.
