Comprehensive Legal Coverage Throughout The Process
Chances are, you have never been through the process of defending your professional medical license before and you are experiencing some anxiety. Eric Sloan can help you through every aspect of the process of defending your license:
- Responding to the initial letter: How you respond to the initial letter is critical. Many medical professionals err by either adding too much information that could be incriminating or by not responding thoroughly to the allegations laid out in the complaint. Mr. Sloan can help you be sure to respond thoroughly and appropriately.
- Hearings before the boards: Depending on the nature of the allegations, you could have to sit before a number of professional and administrative boards to review the allegations. Eric Sloan can represent you in these hearings and prepare you for how to defend yourself and keep your license.
- Settlement negotiations: In some cases, a settlement negotiation with the aggrieved party is the best approach to resolving a dispute of this kind.
- Appeals: Although the professional boards and the Department of Health have considerable autonomy to regulate the medical profession, some cases bring up legal infringements and violations of a medical professional’s rights. In some of these cases, the option for appeal stands as the last possible recourse for retaining a license.
