What information is publicly available about my OPMC discipline?
The information regarding any discipline by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct will be posted on the OPMC website for a physician search. This information will also be available for any potential employers and patients to view. A prospective patient has the ability to conduct a physician search which will show them the charges or allegations you were faced with and whether or not they were contested. This search will also provide information regarding what decision was made by the hearing committee regarding the misconduct. Finally, the search will also provide information regarding if you were penalized in any way by the Board of Professional Medical Conduct as well as any appeals that have taken place.
Our firm understands that medical professionals that been disciplined by the OPMC will face a long road ahead of them when it comes to getting their careers back on track. We understand that it may be difficult to find work again if their license has been revoked and restored. It may be difficult to find a new position, even if the medical professional was able to keep their license, but were fired from their practice. Our legal team understands that this discipline can follow a medical professional for years, especially when a record of the discipline is available for any potential employers and patients to view.
