Minnesota Physician License Defense Attorney

There are times in which the actions of a physician may be questioned or accusations may be made, resulting in an appearance before one of the Minnesota medical boards. Fabian Hoffner has successfully represented physicians in a number of capacities at both disciplinary and post-disciplinary hearings.

Some of the cases that we have dealt with include intemperate use and chemical dependency, standard care allegations, inadequate maintenance of records and documentation, non-therapeutic prescribing, and many more. You can count on not receiving sub-standard results when you allow our firm to work for you. We work diligently and utilize our knowledge of the law and the rules so you can maintain your medical license and your practice.

Disciplinary Investigations

Disciplinary investigations and other actions against physicians have been occurring more and more over the past few years. Approximately half of the complaints are standard-of-care complaints. Others include chemical dependency, sexual boundary violations, and the commission and conviction of crimes. Of course, there are many other violations that a physician can be accused of that may place his or her license at risk. There has been a significant rise in punitive sanctions, as well as the number of cases that are being settled with probated suspensions and lengthy disciplinary orders.

These investigations are typically initiated by a letter and then a telephone call from an investigator. If the state medical board contacts a physician in either one of these ways, it is important to consult with a Minnesota physician license defense lawyer before responding. It is best to not be questioned by the medical board investigator without your attorney present. As a matter of fact, the investigator is prohibited from questioning or even contacting a physician directly once legal counsel is retained.

Providing You With Adequate Information

You need a physician license defense lawyer who can give you all of the information you need, which includes:

  • The board’s disciplinary process
  • Grounds for discipline
  • Penalties
  • Appeals
  • Peer Reviews
  • Network and Insurance
  • Criminal Arrests and Convictions
  • Chemical Dependency

We can walk you through the entire process and help you understand the complaint that has been made against you. Once you understand the complaint and we have investigated all areas of this complaint, we will help you issue a response to the allegations and prepare your defense. Many times, the allegations are initiated by a co-worker, patient, malpractice suit, or a negative peer review. Having a physician license defense lawyer will ensure the best possible outcome in your unique case.
