As a California physician your license, practice, and professional life are governed by the Medical Board of California.
While the Medical Board promotes its mission to protect the quality and access of health care to consumers. In reality, this bureaucracy also spends plenty of time on the licensing, investigation, and discipline of California physicians. The Medical Board investigates hundreds of physician complaints every year. Our California medical license lawyers at Goyette, Ruano & Thompson are experts guiding physicians through licensing investigations and disciplinary appeals. Our team of expert licensing defense lawyers has over a 95% success rate in physician license retention.
The Realities of the Medical Board of California
The Medical Board of California encourages consumers to file complaints. The most prominent features on the Medical Board’s website homepage are direct links to checking up on a physician’s license status and how to file a complaint. The Medical Board even provides an online complaint tutorial on how to most effectively file a complaint against a California physician and other medical professionals governed by the Medical Board.
If you come under investigation you should be advised that the Medical Board is not amateur in these matters. The California Department of Consumer Affairs (“DCA”) conducts physician licensing investigations on behalf of the Medical Board. The DCA has a large number of professional investigators and lawyers that work on the investigation and prosecution of California physician licensing cases. Do not defend yourself in an investigation by the DCA and the Medical Board.
You Have Legal Rights and Options
Fortunately, the Medical Board of California cannot simply act in a unilateral fashion. You earned your license, which does of course mean that you have professional privileges under that license. It also means that you have the rights and standing to defend yourself as aggressively as possible within the limits of legality if and when your license is in jeopardy. A medical license defense attorney who specializes in representing doctors and physicians can help you do just that.
