Physician accused of unprofessional conduct
Our client received a notice of intent to deny his license application for alleged “unprofessional conduct”: On an unknown date in 2011, a complaint was filed against Applicant with the state medical board of Ohio, alleging applicant failed to disclose a 1989 arrest for driving while intoxicated. Following an investigation, the state medical board of Ohio determined that applicant failed to answer its application questions in a correct and candid manner.
In this case, we researched the Ohio medical board statutes and determined that though our client submitted an application in Ohio in 2011, it had not officially been “processed”, since the Ohio board requested more information about the DUI, and therefore he had time to withdraw the Ohio application prior to it being actionable. Because of our research and submision thereof to IFDPR, it granted our client a license with no restrictions.
