License Investigation Alleging Diversion of Controlled Substances by Physician Closed with Finding of No Probable Cause

Posted on Firm News, Professional Licensure Investigations by Robert Nicholson

The Firm successfully defended a physician against allegations that he traded drugs for sex. The allegations, which were made by a competitor, were successfully refuted by the Firm. After consideration of the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm on behalf the physician, the Probable Cause Panel for the licensing board determined that probable cause did not exist and directed that the case against the physician be closed by the Florida Department of Health.

The Firm had fully investigated the allegations at issue, and identified inconsistencies in the record and highlighted evidence that confirmed that the client had not acted improperly and had not violated the Practice Act.
