Professional Licensing

Healthcare professionals know that the licensing and credentialing process is complex, cumbersome, and lengthy. Often, however, they are unaware of the extent to which a negative professional licensing or credentialing action can affect their practice and livelihood. The consequences of such actions can include reprimand, censure, license suspension, and revocation of staff privileges and credentialing — and even criminal prosecution.

Our attorneys represent physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals facing a broad array of licensing- and credentialing-related actions, providing timely, effective counsel in a manner that helps minimize the potential negative impacts on their professional records and careers.

Among recent, representative matters, our lawyers have:

  • Represented physicians in disputes regarding their board certifications and certification eligibility
  • Represented physicians in more than two-dozen cases involving disputes with hospitals regarding credentialing, re-credentialing, employment agreements, restrictive covenants, contract buy-outs, fair hearings, and the like
  • Achieved the re-credentialing and reinstatement of physicians from whom participation in an insurance network had been revoked
  • Represented physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, podiatrists, and other medical professionals in matters before the State Boards of Medicine, Osteopathy, Nursing, Podiatry, and other specialties
  • Represented international medical graduates in disputes with the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
  • Represented physicians in disputes with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Program
  • Represented providers of medical services in matters before administrative law judges

" I have known Dennis Abramson as an attorney of the highest quality and regard for over 10 years. During this time I have referred him dozens of matters and each one has been met with great success. He is consistently able to achieve results for his clients that many other attorneys are unable to obtain. In addition, he provides a personal touch that is rarely seen in lawyers today. When making a referral I firmly believe that it is a reflection of me and my judge of character and ability. For this reason Dennis is always at the top of my list. In short, Dennis makes me look good by doing right by my clients. I cannot make a stronger endorsement. " — Jonathan G.
