Texas Medical License Defense

Professional Medical License Defense for Doctors, Nurses, and Pharmacists in Texas

Medical licenses aren’t earned easily. You’ve poured years into achieving a medical degree, and then a license to practice medicine in Texas.

You’ve invested in an expensive education, studied hard, made sacrifices in every area of life, and worked endless hours in residency. Now you’ve arrived at what should be the reward for your hard work, a fruitful and respected career.

While you didn’t earn your medical license overnight, the Texas medical board can take it almost that quickly. If you don’t defend yourself, there is a very real chance they will.

Do you currently face disciplinary action, patient complaints, or criminal allegations in Texas? Are you concerned about losing your medical license? Act quickly to protect your good name and your career.

Too many physicians make the mistake of assuming the state medical board will be on their side and see things their way. Or they may think that a patient’s complaint is so baseless it couldn’t possibly warrant suspension of their license, let alone revocation.

You can’t count on the government to look out for your best interests. Only two people will do that: you and the lawyer you hire.

Be sure you choose an attorney with experience in this highly specific area of law. An attorney who will approach your case with the seriousness, strategic acumen, and passion it requires.

There is no substitute for experience, passion, or legal command. Hiring the right Texas medical license defense lawyer can mean the difference between keeping your practice and changing careers. It can mean the difference between a victory before the medical board and an embarrassing sanction.

Revoked Medical License in Texas Due to Drug Felony Charges

Texas Medical License DefenseIronically, those responsible for prescribing medications in this country are also the people being charged with drug felonies at an alarming rate. That’s because the federal government has issued a number of edicts targeting clinics and pharmacies. State governments have generally followed suit. In many of these cases, the charges are inflated or altogether misguided. All the result of sloppy law enforcement work or hasty investigations.

Even if we defeat the criminal charges for our clients, as we often can, the impact on your reputation and your medical license can linger.

Medical board hearings have different rules and legal standards. If the evidence doesn’t uphold charges in the criminal system, your license may still be revoked or suspended.

That’s why it’s vital your defense team can handle state and federal criminal cases, and healthcare license defense.

Criminal drug charges that commonly lead to the loss of a medical license in Texas include:

  • Drug diversion
  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking / distribution
  • Drug conspiracy

Oberheiden, P.C. can help with these and any other state or federal drug crimes in Texas.

The Impact of a Texas DWI or DUI on Your Professional License

Drunk driving is one of the most over-pressed criminal charges against white-collar professionals in Texas.

There is a difference between driving drunk and driving after merely having had a drink.

You know as a care provider, there is a difference between having a substance in your system and being impaired by that substance.

Field sobriety tests, drug screens, and other detection tests used by police in Texas are frequently wrong. In many cases, they are incapable of accurately measuring impairment. Based on that, it is often possible to defeat Texas DWI or DUI charges. Even in that event, you could still face disciplinary action from the Texas Medical Board.

A medical license defense lawyer in Texas can help you address both the DWI charge and any administrative action that may folllow.

At Oberheiden, P.C., we help healthcare providers with a wide range of other legal issues related to substance abuse. We recognize the sensitive nature of these cases, and we pride ourselves on representation that is both aggressive and compassionate.

Medical Malpractice, Ethical Issues, or Other Criminal Charges

Challenges to your healthcare license can arise from many legal concerns, including:

  • Medical malpractice lawsuits
  • Qui tam lawsuits
  • Healthcare fraud investigations
  • Alleged ethical violations or breaches of the standard of care
  • Formal complaints filed by a former or disgruntled patient
  • Non-medical criminal charges in Florida or any other state
  • Administrative disciplinary issues
  • Any law enforcement or fraud investigation (e.g., DOJ, DEA, DHS, FBI, MAC, RAC, ZIPC, OIG, CMS, HEAT, etc.)

Relatively minor state-level criminal infractions could endanger your ability to stay in practice. It isn’t uncommon for a minor criminal case to resolve while the ancillary medical board dispute looms.

Even though a licensing hearing may take place because of a criminal matter, the two issues proceed separately and under different sets of rules.
