License Investigation Against Physician Closed with a Finding of No Probable Cause
Posted on Firm News October 9, 2018 by Parker Eastin
The Firm successfully defended the Firm’s physician client against allegations that the physician had practiced below the standard of care and had failed to keep adequate records in connection with a medical marijuana patient. The case against the physician was closed with no action being taken against the physician.
The Firm investigated the allegations at issue and prepared a rebuttal statement that highlighted evidence that demonstrated that the physician had acted properly and had not violated the Florida Medical Practice Act. After consideration of the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm, the Probable Cause Panel for the licensing board agreed and determined that no probable cause existed to bring charges against the physician, and the panel directed that the case against the physician be closed by the Florida Department of Health with a finding of No Probable Cause.
