Protect Your License: New York receives over 7,000 complaints about physicians over the course of the year, with approximately 400 of those resulting in charges against physicians. One third of those doctors end up having their licenses revoked . Other doctors may lose hospital privileges or insurance contracts as a result of disciplinary procedures. Although physicians may not have much control over whether or not a complaint is made, they do have control over events that lead to charges. The ideal state is one in which a physician who is subject of complaint responds appropriately so that charges are not brought. Some physicians in New York continue to make mistakes in responding to complaints or encouraging complainants because they do not understand the Office of Professional Medical Conduct and how to relate to it. This program will teach a physician what to do when a complaint is made to insure that the medical license is not at risk.
Speakers: Michael Goldstein , MD, Esq., Board of Censors, New York County Medical Society, Keith W. Servis, Executive Director, Office of Professional Medical Conduct, Michael S. Kelton, Esq., Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Ferrara, & Einiger, LLP
