The New York Office of Professional Medical Conduct, or OPMC, is charged with investigating complaints about physicians, physician assistants, and specialist assistants. Doctors and other healthcare professionals who find themselves under investigation by OPMC risk disciplinary actions that can have serious effects on their medical licenses, career, and their future ability to practice medicine. There are many reasons a medical professional or physician may be sanctioned by OPMC.
If proven, a charge of professional misconduct can result in disciplinary action, including revocation or suspension of a professional license. This can damage reputation, career, and livelihood. It is critical to go into an investigation with the legal assistance of a skilled New York NY professional medical defense lawyer when you are facing such allegations.

There are many factors that can trigger an investigation or a disciplinary action, and could result in your medical license being revoked. Many actions are defined in New York law as professional misconduct. The licensing agency will take disciplinary action if a doctor is found guilty of professional misconduct.
Without an investigation, no disciplinary action can be taken. There are two options available to you if you find out that you are being investigated by a state administrative agency or law enforcement agency. You can either handle the situation yourself, or you could seek legal counsel.
However, lawyers are not licensed to practice medicine and physicians do not practice law. If you try to resolve the problem without a NY medical defense lawyer, things can become more complicated. All information obtained during the investigation can be used against you. If you attempt to resolve the matter yourself, it could significantly complicate your case.
We advise physicians not to discuss their cases with anyone, particularly the OPMC investigators. You have a duty of compliance with all document requests if you are notified by the OPMC. However, you do not have to give any statements to the investigators. Contact an experienced medical license defense attorney right away.
