In the quiet corners of the health care industry are osteopaths, specialists who treat and manipulate the body to allow it to “heal itself.” Not unlike other specialized medical fields, the road to becoming an osteopath is a challenging one, requiring extensive years of training, study, and practice. It’s no secret that your license is a valued key to your livelihood. However, your ability to maintain your licensure can be threatened by possible allegations by those you treat, your competitors, or colleagues. Possible accusations include things such as excessively prescribing medications, misuse of alcohol, abetting the unlicensed practice of medicine, negligence or incompetence, convictions or criminal charges substantially related to practice, and unprofessional conduct.
The Osteopathic Medical Board of California may take administrative action against your license, including suspension, citation and fines, probation, or revocation of your license. If you’re facing any accusations that may put your license and livelihood in jeopardy, don’t take a chance on defending your hard-won osteopathic license. At San Diego License Attorney, we have the resources and experience to help you navigate the difficult process and secure the most favorable outcome possible.
