Our firm provides aggressive defense for Texas physicians, nurses, pharmacist, and dentists after a patient or other party files a complaint with the licensing board. If you are a licensed medical professional and have received a licensing complaint, BERTOLINO LLP can help.
We will defend you when your license is under attack by the Texas Medical Board, Texas Board of Nursing, Texas State Board of Pharmacy, or the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners.
The Licensing Board is not on your side.
These licensing boards are not out to help you or serve your best interest. By design they exist to protect the public. To ensure the best possible outcome in your case, you need an experienced medical license defense attorney to advocate for your rights and help you navigate the complaint process.
The complaint process is specific to each Board.
Each Texas professional Licensing Board has their own complaint and enforcement process. The common thread is that every complaint is thoroughly investigated. Even if you believe a complaint is meritless, it is important that you take it seriously, face the allegations head-on, and properly defend yourself from the start.
Common complaints against medical professionals include:
- Negligent quality of care
- Professional misconduct
- Inadequate maintenance of patient charts and records
- Unethical behavior
- Allegations of inappropriate relationships between a provider and patient
- Allegations of drug or alcohol abuse
While the above are common allegations in complaints, understand there are many other allegations that routinely appear in complaints. Tens of thousands of complaints against Texas doctors, nurses, pharmacist, and dentists are filed every year.
After you receive a notice of complaint from the Licensing Board, we urge you to:
Contact an experienced attorney. Professional license defense is an intricate and nuanced area of law. You want an advocate who has experience handling matters with your licensing board. Our firm knows the ins and outs of professional license defense. Call us (512) 476-5757 or contact us here.
Respond promptly to notices from the Board. Do not miss deadlines to respond to requests from the Board. The first notice of compliant you receive will likely include a deadline to respond to the allegations. First responses are critical to the ultimate success of your defense.
Gather evidence and preserve documentation. Take the time to gather all the documentation pertaining to the circumstances surrounding the complaint against you. Under no circumstances should you attempt to hide, alter, or destroy evidence.
Practice professional decorum. A challenge to your license can spark a host of negative feelings. It is important to maintain decorum and professionalism, especially when you appear before the Board. Prepare with your attorney so that you are well-prepared to speak on your own behalf before the Board. Dress in your best professional attire. Treat the proceedings with respect.
