License Complaint Investigations against Two Podiatrists Closed with Findings of No Probable Cause

Posted on Firm News by author

After consideration of the rebuttal statements prepared by the Firm in two separate licensure matters, the Probable Cause Panel for the Board of Podiatric Medicine determined that probable cause did not exist in either case and directed that both cases be closed by the Florida Department of Health. After the Firm fully investigated the allegations contained in the preliminary complaints against the two podiatrists, the Firm was able to successfully rebut the allegations in its submissions to the Department of Health. In one matter, a disgruntled former patient alleged that the podiatrist performed medically unnecessary services and provided substandard care. In the second, a disgruntled former patient alleged that the podiatrist provided substandard care by, among other things, performing the wrong surgical procedure. Nicholson & Eastin identified several inconsistencies in the records and highlighted evidence that confirmed that the podiatrists had provided medically necessary and appropriate care to both complainants.
