The California Medical Board seems to be filing more and more accusations against California physicians for conduct related to prescription writing. Physicians are now required to take controlled substance continuing educational courses dealing with when and how to prescribe medications for pain.
I get 5-10 calls a week from physicians who are being investigated for failing to follow the guidelines as it relates to prescribing practices. Some of the cases don't get filed, but if they do, major damage to your medical practice can follow.
If you are being investigated by the California Medical Board for prescribing practices or any other matter, feel free to contact our firm for a consultation. Speaking with an attorney can mean the difference between a pubic acknowledgement of medical board sanctions or a non-filing.
