A DUI can be a career-ending event, if not properly handled. Sadly, too many physicians have lost their medical license because of a DUI. Others have been subjected to lengthy, invasive and expensive monitoring requirements by the state’s impairment program, also known as a professional help program (PHP).
In Florida, the PHP for nurses is the Intervention Project for Nurses (IPN), and for all other healthcare providers, the PHP is the Professionals Resource Network (PRN). If you are in Michigan, the PHP is the Health Professionals Recovery Program (HPRP).
But all too often, physicians enter the state’s impairment program without first consulting a medical licensing attorney.
Our medical license defense attorneys strive to protect physicians’ medical licenses and ability to practice unrestricted, without monitoring requirements. We represent both physicians who have recently been charged with a DUI and physicians who have prior DUIs and are facing disciplinary action.
