Amarillo Physician License Defense Lawyer
In recent years, disciplinary actions taken against the many physicians practicing in the state of Texas by the Texas Medical board (TMB) have seen marked increases. These cases, which are brought about on the basis of standard-of-care complaints, chemical dependency, sexual boundary violations, and a variety of other reasons, can easily result in serious consequences for the practitioner, potentially threatening their ability to continue their professional practice in the state.
The standard procedure when such a complaint is brought against you will begin with a phone call from a TMB investigator who will inform you of the nature of the charges brought against you and seek to begin an investigation into the circumstances of the incident in question. It is at no point advisable to respond to or interact with a TMB investigator without consulting with an attorney first, and these investigators are in fact barred from contacting you directly once you retain legal representation.
