Contact a Defense Attorney Right Way
State medical board investigations may be initiated in response to hospital peer review proceedings; placement of a doctor in the National Practitioner Data Bank; administrative, regulatory or criminal investigations; or original allegations made directly to the board.
If you have come under scrutiny, you will likely be contacted with a letter and/or telephone call from an investigator. If you have been contacted in any manner, it is advisable for you to contact a lawyer before replying in any way to the investigator or the board.
You should never meet with or allow yourself to be questioned by an investigator, in a formal or informal setting, without an attorney. Once you are represented, the board’s investigators should cease contacting you directly and communicate with your attorney instead.
