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.
