Healthcare Misconduct Defense Attorney
Experienced Defense Attorneys for issues with the Office of Professional Medical Conduct, (OPMC), and the Office of Professional Discipline (OPD)
Walker Medical Law is a law firm focused on representing physicians, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, chiropractors, physicians assistants, pharmacists, psychologists, and all other healthcare providers. This representation includes but is not limited to:
Individual healthcare providers in disciplinary proceedings with their hospitals or other employers. Employment issues can adversely impact one’s license.
Physicians and other providers who desire to apply to restore a previously revoked license.
Physicians in financial disputes with Medicare, Medicaid and other HMO organizations regarding their billing for services.
All of the above situations are extremely serious and require experienced counsel as your license was not easily obtained and must be protected at all costs.
Our experienced medical license defense attorneys focus on representing physicians in a wide variety of investigations and disciplinary proceedings commenced by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct (“OPMC”), a branch of the Department of Health of the State of New York. This is some of the most important work that we do as the license of the physician is often in jeopardy. – MORE

HMO’s and the government are routinely auditing physician billing records in an attempt to recover money paid to the physician. The concept is for the insurer to retain a company to do the auditing and pay that company a percentage of the money that is recovered. If you are audited, get a team on your side from the beginning to challenge the validity of the audit. This will put you in the best position to minimize the damage or avoid it altogether. – MORE
Being named as a defendant in a medical malpractice lawsuit is never something that a doctor wants to have happen. However, usually you simply send the papers to your malpractice insurance company and the company assigns your defense to a law firm and the company pays the legal bills for your defense. But sometimes the physician is found to be without insurance. – MORE
