Experienced acupuncture license defense attorneys handling complex cases
In the State of Texas, licensed acupuncturists are governed by the Texas State Board of Acupuncture Examiners (TSBAE/Acupuncture Board). Part of this governance entails investigating complaints regarding misconduct on the part of licensed acupuncturists.
Some allegations and issues that could put your license in jeopardy include:
- Failure to follow clean needle protocols.
- Breaking a patient's confidentiality.
- Being convicted of a criminal offense.
- Dishonest or unethical conduct.
- Violations of the Acupuncture Practice Act or an agency rule.
When the Acupuncture Board receives a complaint against a licensed acupuncturist, they will send a letter providing you with notice of allegation. The Board imposes strict deadlines to respond, and because the initial letter is generally vague, it can be difficult to respond prudently. That is one reason why it is so important to contact an experienced medical license defense attorney as soon as possible.
Our attorneys know how to represent acupuncturists at every stage of the complaint process, from the initial investigation and any settlement negotiations through subsequent hearings that may follow.
