What is OPMC’s Role in Your Medical License

The Office of Professional Medical Conduct is the investigative arm of the Department of Health. It controls physicians and physician assistants. If they investigate you, you have to take that very seriously. OPMC must investigate every complaint against the license, and they will do so by talking to the witnesses that come forward. They will interview employees, they will interview fellow workers, and they will look at all the records that the state of New York has on you in regard to any kind of conduct, whether it be driving or drinking or things of that nature.

In any event, the OPMC can come and investigate you, interview you, and take adverse action on your license, if they find that you have been guilty of unprofessional conduct. The point is, you have to pay attention to any time you get investigated by this organization, and you have to get professional help to defend yourself adequately.
