Let Us Defend Your Interests
The Texas Medical Board is required to review every grievance submitted to it. This means that any disgruntled patient can jeopardize a physician’s medical license and livelihood no matter how benign their complaint. When a physician receives a letter of inquiry, it is important to obtain legal counsel as soon as possible, as the Board typically requires a response within 30 days or less. An inadequate response can cause the Board’s investigation to drag on, causing further stress and increasing the chances of your professional reputation being damaged.
We work with physicians throughout the process to encourage a speedy resolution, bringing peace of mind to our clients. Our results-driven approach is designed to protect a physician’s license and allowing as little disruption to his or her practice as possible. Our legal team is extremely familiar with all steps of the disciplinary process, from the initial interview through administrative hearings. We are fully prepared to guide you through the review process to achieve successful outcome.
