New York City OPMC & OPD Lawyers
When medical professionals become subjects of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) or the Office of Professional Discipline (OPD) investigations, it is critical that they enlist an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The state investigates every complaint, regardless of how much merit the complaint has. Even anonymous complaints are investigated. However, this does not mean that these investigations should not be taken seriously. The investigations are thorough, and one wrong step at any point in the investigation could seriously impact the career of the person being investigated.
At the law firm of Abrams Fensterman, LLP, we have an extremely high rate of success in protecting doctors in OPMC investigations and dentists, nurses, pharmacists, chiropractors and other professionals in OPD investigations.
We engage in extensive research, conduct interviews with all involved parties and prepare a strategy for stopping all OPMC and OPD actions before they get off the ground.
Whether medical investigations are related to anything from improper record keeping to sexual misconduct with a patient, our lawyers can help defend you.
…To the Finish
While we are quite successful in stopping these matters from escalating, there are certainly situations in which escalation cannot be avoided. We stand by our clients, pursuing the matter to the highest level when necessary.
Although OPMC and OPD actions can result in such severe penalties as revocation of professional licenses, our goal is to eliminate repercussions, or, where a penalty is unavoidable, to limit repercussions to the smallest penalty possible.
We also represent our clients in any parallel medical malpractice defense case that may be brought in civil court.
