Medical Professional Discipline
Furman Kornfeld & Brennan LLP represents physicians before the Office of Professional Medical Conduct and other healthcare providers before the Office of Professional Discipline.
Whether at the Investigation or Hearing Stage, FKB has the experience to assist doctors through the disciplinary process. FKB attorneys have helped doctors successfully resolve patient disputes and are experienced with consent agreements. We understand what is at stake for a healthcare professional who is being investigated. The proceedings are stressful, costly and can result in license revocation, suspension, censure and reprimand, and a fine. Final disciplinary actions are public information and can have a devastating impact on a doctor’s ability to practice.
The FKB partners began their legal careers as New York City prosecutors, and their familiarity with the process from the prosecutor’s perspective lends invaluable insight into how to assess and defend doctors in disciplinary proceedings. In addition, FKB’s specialized knowledge allows us to advance our clients’ defense in the most effective manner possible, and we have a vast database of experts to call upon and assist in the process. Whether the case calls for providing a defense at a disciplinary hearing or negotiating a resolution, FKB provides the most effective legal representation available.
