Professional Licensing And Privileging Investigations

Throughout the course of a medical professional's career they may face a challenge to their medical license and livelihood. An investigation by the New York Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) or New York Education Department Office of Professional Discipline (OPD) is often one of the most stressful experiences that a health care provider may undergo. It is essential to consult with an attorney upon the receipt of any notice of an investigation in order to ensure you are aware of all your legal rights throughout the process.

Resolution To Medical/Legal Controversies

At The Tarantino Law Firm, LLP, we counsel, support and defend professionals during the investigatory and disciplinary process conducted by both the OPMC and OPD. For over two decades, our firm has provided superior personal service. As experienced litigators we can ensure a comprehensive and effective defense.

Strong Physician And Health Care Provider Defense

No one wants their medical ability discredited in any way. We understand how important a strong defense is, not only to your job but also to your reputation and future.

  • In every case we work diligently to protect you and your career and practice.
  • Our firm has an established practice known for diligence, experience and results.
  • As a health care professional you carry out your tasks and services knowing that you will do all you can for your patients. But even when calling upon extensive education, experience and skill, a diagnosis, procedure or outcome is not always what was hoped for or planned.

Defense of Licensing Board Allegations

We regularly represent doctors, nurses, and other licensed health care workers and professionals in hearings before state and federal licensing boards. Once a complaint of malpractice or misconduct has been filed with the state licensing board, your license may be temporarily or permanently suspended. Early representation can ensure you are adequately protected during both the initial investigation and throughout the process and appeal.
