New York City OPMC Process: Lawyers Guiding You Through Every Step

Experienced Medical Conduct Investigation Lawyers Serving Long Island, New York City and Rochester Areas

At the law firm of Abrams, Fensterman, we guide doctors through every step of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) review process. From the initial investigation to the completion of any hearing in front of the Board of Professional Medical Conduct, we defend the physician in every step of the discipline case. We stand by our clients to help minimize any risk of severe penalties, such as revocation of their medical license.

The New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct will investigate any complaint made against a medical provider, no matter the source of the complaint. When our New York professional medical license defense attorneys get involved, we will conduct our own thorough investigation in order to prepare a comprehensive defense strategy.

Sometimes an OPMC investigation will go no further than the interview stage if we can successfully show that the claim is not worth pursuing. However, if it is determined that the complaint may have merit, a formal review process will begin. We continue to represent our clients before the medical board to help ensure their side of the story is fairly considered. Our involvement can help reduce any repercussions to the lowest penalty possible. We also represent clients in court proceedings such as court appeals and challenges to adverse license determinations.

One wrong step at any stage of the OPMC process can hinder your chances of a successful outcome. During each stage of the investigation or formal review, our highly experienced New York City lawyers advise and counsel you.

Our attorneys have a substantial record of proven success in guiding clients through the OPMC process.
