Texas Medical Board Complaint Defense
At Robles Bracken and Hughes, PLLC, we handle medical and nursing board defense for medical professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), and registered nurses. We have successfully defended clients in board matters involving a host of complex medical issues including allegations of misdiagnosis, medication errors, nursing errors, surgical errors, post-operative complications, labor and delivery, interpretation of diagnostic studies, pathological interpretation, management of antibiotic therapy, etc.
The Texas Medical Board is authorized by the Texas Medical Practice Act to investigate and discipline licensees for violations of the Act and Board rules. We have defended many healthcare professionals who have had board complaints filed against them and have successfully obtained dismissals and favorable decisions for many clients.
Upon receipt of an initial complaint, the board has 45 days to perform an initial investigation and determine whether it has jurisdiction and whether the claimant has sufficient facts to warrant further action. The Board may choose to notify a licensee that a complaint has been filed and request the licensee to respond to the complaint by answering questions and providing supporting evidence. It is essential that you hire an experienced medical malpractice and Board defense attorney to assist you from the beginning of this process.
