Is Your Professional License Under Review? Call A Professional License Defense Attorney.

Doctors, surgeons, nurses, pharmaceutical technicians, and physician’s assistants spend several years training before being employed and they must also obtain a professional license. The expected standard of care in medical settings is high, and professional licensing boards do not take any chances.

Criminal accusations and formal complaints against health care professionals can result in license reviews and revocation. At The Katz Law Group LLC, we have years of experience in defending Atlanta professionals against accusations. When your livelihood is on the line, it’s important to explore your legal options.

Potential Accusations That Could Result In License Revocation

As medical professionals have such important responsibilities, their conduct is regulated quite heavily. Accusations of misconduct or criminal behavior could result in license revocation. Here are some of the most common accusations that can result in license revocation:

  • Drug offenses, including trafficking and possession
  • Sexual misconduct, including with staff or patients
  • Health care fraud, including false billing
  • Gross negligence or incompetence

Any form of misconduct or criminal activity could result in a professional license being revoked. However, defendants will first have the opportunity to present their case. Some of the governing bodies that oversee medical license disciplinary proceedings include:

  • The Georgia Composite Medical Board
  • The Georgia Board of Nursing
  • The Georgia Board of Pharmacy
  • The Georgia Professional Standards Commission
  • The Georgia State Disciplinary Board
  • Other professional licensing agencies
