OPMC Process: Lawyers Guiding You Through Every Step
Experienced Professional Medical Conduct Investigation and Hearing Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout New York State
At the law firm of Abrams Fensterman, LLP, we guide doctors through every step of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) process. From the initial investigation to the completion of any hearing in front of the Board of Professional Medical Conduct, we defend our physician clients in every step of the disciplinary case. We stand by our clients to and strive to eliminate any penalty. Where penalty cannot be avoided, we work with our physician and physician assistant 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 that fits each licensed professionals individualized needs.
Sometimes an OPMC investigation will go no further than the interview stage, if we can successfully show that the claim/s is/are not worth pursuing. Our attorneys work with clients in advance of any interviews to prepare them for the interview and ensure that they are as comfortable as possible with the process and with the questions that will be asked during the interview. If we are retained prior to an interview, which is always best, our clients are thoroughly prepared to go into interviews before they ever occur. If, after an interview, it is determined by OPMC that the complaint may have merit, a formal review process will begin. We continue to represent our clients before the medical board attorneys to help ensure our licensee’s 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 appeals, restoration proceedings, and challenges to adverse license determinations.
One wrong step at any stage of the OPMC process can hinder your chances of a successful outcome.
Our attorneys have a substantial record of proven success in guiding clients throughout every stage of the OPMC process.
