san diego physician license defense lawyers

Physicians have worked hard through years of study and internships to obtain a medical license. However, since healthcare is a highly regulated profession, doctors are often forced to deal with accusations from patients that could potentially end their career. If you are a San Diego physician and need medical license defense, contact a medical malpractice lawyer for help at once.

License defense lawyers represent physicians who are accused of wrongful death, patient injury and more. These lawyers have experience working to help physicians suffer as little loss as possible as a result of a claim. Some areas California license defense lawyers have experience in are:

  • Licensing Board Investigations
  • Contract Disputes
  • Physician License Defense
  • Medical Business Transaction Disputes
  • Probation
  • Modification Of Probation
  • Peer Review

California physicians can be subjected to disciplinary action for many reasons. Depending on the accusation, discipline can range from probation to license revocation. Some of the most common reasons doctors may face discipline include:

  • Errors Made In Surgery
  • Drug Abuse
  • DUI
  • Fraud
  • Negligence
  • Theft
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Sexual Conduct

Types Of Discipline

In California, physicians can face a variety of disciplinary actions such as:

  • Continuing Education Classes
  • Required Monitoring
  • Probation
  • Prescription Suspension
  • Public Letter Of Reprimand
  • Suspension Of Medical License

Any disciplinary action, no matter how minor can have a negative impact on the healthcare providers ability to make money. Public letters of reprimand are a matter of public record and are visible to anyone. Complaints can also affect a physicians ability to maintain privileges at hospitals or being accredited with different insurance companies. It can also prevent doctors from changing clinics or obtaining privileges to new hospitals.

Disciplinary Agencies

In today’s healthcare field, physicians are held to a very high standard and may face disciplinary actions from agencies such as:

Hiring A Lawyer

Hiring a lawyer who is experienced in mounting a defense for physicians who are facing disciplinary action, is an integral part of defending the right to keep your medical license. For the best outcome, it is imperative that a lawyer be contacted as soon as you are aware of the impending complaint. An attorney can examine the facts of your case and advise you as the best way to proceed. Physicians who are facing discipline have the right to request a hearing before a decision is made. Your attorney will investigate the allegations and uncover any information that may assist you at your hearing. It is far better to defend the allegations to the licensing board before any sanctions have been put into place. While there is an appeals process, it is difficult to get a decision reversed.

If you are facing disciplinary action and are in danger of losing your license to practice medicine in San Diego, consult an attorney for advice. During a consultation, your attorney will gather information that may help you and make recommendations on the best way to move forward. Having someone to guide you through the legal maze of medical malpractice can greatly reduce the stress associated with these cases. Don’t wait until it is too late to ask for help. Failing to respond in a timely manner or not having a lawyer to represent you may affect your earnings for the rest of your career.
