Ohio Physician License Defense

Effective Ohio Lawyers Defend Physicians Facing License Discipline

Experienced Cleveland-area attorneys counter allegations of misconduct

Through extensive education and skillful performance of their duties, doctors earn a respected place within their communities. Unfortunately, one charge, even when not warranted, can trigger a proceeding that threatens a doctor’s medical license. Located just outside Cleveland, Sindell and Sindell, LLP represents physicians throughout Ohio in license proceedings before the State Medical Board. Our attorneys have more than five decades of combined legal experience and the detailed knowledge that is necessary to combat these allegations effectively. Whether the disciplinary matter involves a billing issue, malpractice allegation or some other type of claim, we will fight to preserve what you have established over years of hard work.

Knowledgeable advocates handle all types of Ohio Medical Board actions

No matter how complex or difficult your case might seem, we will deliver knowledgeable, assertive representation in all communications and proceedings before the medical board. Our firm handles a full range of medical license matters, including those relating to allegations of:

  • Financial or billing impropriety — Complicated insurance rules can lead to problems with patients’ billing statements and highly charged accusations. If someone claims that you billed them incorrectly or filed an erroneous insurance claim, we have the skill and expert resources to disprove false allegations.
  • Malpractice allegations — Every aspect of medical treatment presents challenges. When someone claims your work did not meet professional standards, our firm will aggressively counter these statements and mount a comprehensive defense.
  • Improper patient relationships — Doctors exert a great influence over those they treat, and patients can sometimes misinterpret a word or gesture. In cases where physicians are accused of initiating improper sexual contact or seeking a relationship with a patient, we have the experience and sensitivity to present what actually occurred.
  • Alcohol or drug impairment — The abuse of prescription drugs, illegal substances and alcohol affects every part of society. Should you face a license sanction based on an alleged impairment of this type, we will pursue a resolution that protects all affected parties.
  • Criminal convictions — Even a misdemeanor conviction unrelated to your practice could impact your medical license. We will bring supportive information to the medical board’s attention that might not be apparent in the record.

Don’t assume that you will avoid a license restriction, suspension or revocation just because you have behaved properly. It is very easy for facts to get twisted or misinterpreted. In a free initial consultation, we will make a detailed review of your circumstances. With our guidance, you can make the strongest possible case and give yourself the best chance to move forward successfully in your career.

Ohio physician license defense attorneys

Your medical license is perhaps the most valuable asset you own. Therefore, the defense of your physician license, entitling you to practice medicine, is of paramount importance. Being the focus of an investigation or the subject of disciplinary hearings before the Ohio State Medical Board can be a frightening and intimidating experience. Whether you are fully or partially responsible, or completely innocent of the medical license disciplinary allegations or charges, representation by an experienced attorney is generally preferable to representing yourself before the State Medical Board. Given what is at stake for you as a medical doctor, it is misguided to ask yourself the question: Can I afford to retain an experienced medical license defense attorney before the State Medical Board? The correct question to ask yourself as a doctor of medicine is: Can I afford not to?

Combined, the attorneys at Sindell and Sindell have represented physicians for nearly a half century in a variety of matters related to their medical practice, including the defense and protection of their medical licenses before the Ohio State Medical Board.  Matters we handle include physician drug, alcohol and substance abuse and addiction issues, alleged practice errors, billing and claims allegations, mental or emotional impairments, and sexual or criminal issues which trigger the investigative and/or disciplinary involvement of the State Medical Board of Ohio. We are passionate about delivering zealous, appropriate defense of the medical licenses that our docs have earned. No matter what the allegation involves, we are empathetic toward their concerns and distress.
