Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the California Medical Board? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your physician and surgeon license.
As healers, you are the ones we look to for medical care for illnesses, injuries and disease. The job of a physician or surgeon is a calling still considered among the noblest of careers dating back to the ancient Greek Hippocratic oath, still in use today.
Whether you are a physician, surgeon or both, we place our lives in your competent hands. We know it took more than a decade of study, internship and residency for you to earn the title of physician or surgeon, no matter what your specialized field. The awe with which we regard your knowledge and expertise is one surpassed only by the confidence we have in your ability to diagnose and treat our most challenging health issues as well as offer advice on ways to maintain good health.
But we also know you wear many hats as well – counselor, comforter, and at times – even researcher, to name a few. You must routinely possess the ability to break down complex medical terminology, explain your reasoning behind the various drugs you prescribe, map out courses of treatments, and utilize applicable treatment protocols so that individuals can fully invest themselves in their own medical care or that of their loved ones. You also deal with the bureaucracy of insurance companies and publicly provided medical care programs, who often ask that you observe certain limitations and guidelines with which you may not fully agree.
Malpractice lawsuits are only part of the heavy liabilities you face as a physician or surgeon, placing your hard-won license, issued by the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Medical Board of California, at risk. If you are in the application process to obtain your California medical license and are experiencing denial or challenges in the process, or if you are a licensed physician or surgeon whose license has been placed at risk, it’s vital to have a competent medical license attorney on your side. Call us to speak to one of our seasoned medical license attorneys at (800) 456-3767.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the California Medical Board? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your physician’s assistant license.
As a physician’s assistant (PA), compassion is your middle name. Your job is often confused with that of a medical assistant, who performs routine clinical and clerical tasks. However, since you are formally trained to provide diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive healthcare services under the direction of physicians and surgeons, we know your role is much more robust.
Working as a member of a health care team, as a physician assistant you take medical histories, examine and treat patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests and even make diagnoses. You also treat minor injuries by suturing, splinting, and casting, record progress notes, counsel patients, and are involved in ordering and carrying out therapy in addition to prescribing some kinds of medications.
Even though you work under the supervision of medical experts, you are often used as principal care providers in rural or inner-city clinics where there is no full-time physician. But whether you work in primary care specialties, internal medicine, pediatrics, medicine, general surgery, emergency medicine, orthopedics, geriatrics, among other specialized fields, the study and experience it took to become a respected physician assistant was no small task. Earning your physician assistant license to practice here in California was no doubt a long, but rewarding road for you.

Don’t go it alone when dealing with the Physician Assistant Committee. Give us a call at (800) 456-3767 to speak to a license attorney today.
Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the California Medical Board? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your midwife license.
It is interesting to note that the role of the midwife dates back to biblical times. This means traditional midwives have delivered millions of babies around the world for thousands of years. It has only been in the early 20th century that midwifery began to be widely regarded as a profession. Today, midwives are an important part of the team of medical providers who specialize in women’s health care and offer alternatives to the traditional obstetrician-gynecologists who routinely deliver babies in hospital settings.
As a midwife, we know you provide important services, such as prenatal care and counseling throughout a pregnancy, monitoring the development of the fetus and the condition of the mother by taking thorough histories, arranging for laboratory screening and performing exams. Your role in helping parents-to-be develop a birthing plan is key to their entire birthing experience, referring patients to obstetricians only if patients wish to undergo tests that the midwives cannot provide (such as amniocentesis) or the patients develop high-risk conditions that require them to be treated by a physician.
Whether delivering a baby in a hospital, a birth center or a home, your role as a midwife provides support for pregnant women an their partners from the time labor gets under way until the baby is born, often helping mothers-to-be avoid c-sections, reducing the need for episiotomies and providing postpartum follow-up care after a baby is born. But your services often don’t end there. Many midwives now handle annual exams and many of the other women’s health services that OB-GYNs provide, consulting with their patients about birth control, general gynecological health and lifestyle choices.
There is more than one route to becoming a midwife, but most require years of study and applied practice. As in most medical disciplines, your California license to practice as a midwife, governed by the Medical Board of California, is vulnerable not only to malpractice claims, but to other accusations as well. If you are an aspiring midwife having difficulty obtaining your license or are in the throes of having to defend your current license, get help by calling Rose Law at (800) 456-3767.
Are you facing a license investigation, accusation, or statement of issues by the California Medical Board? Our law firm’s experienced legal team of license defense attorneys, paralegals, lawyers, and professionals can help you protect your research psychoanalyst license.
There are expert individuals in many sciences, such as research psychoanalysts, who study models to determine the best knowledge that can be gleaned from research experimentation and analysis. Immersed in clinical material, the analyst – as a researcher – tries to identify the different elements of a given process to determine what changes, how it changes and why.
Because using individual case studies for research can involve the subjectivity of the observer, it takes more research to formulate the basis for treatment of a psychological disorder than many of us could imagine. As a research psychoanalyst, you are the ones we look to you to help further the behavioral sciences as disciplines, as theoretical systems and to raise even more questions to broaden the scope of knowledge in the field. The study of human nature is, after all, never fully perfected.
As a registered research psychoanalyst, you have spent years in academic study and graduated from an approved psychoanalytic institution. The work you do in psychoanalysis is done as an adjunct to teaching, training or research, helping to fill in the many gaps that remain in the study of the human psyche.
The Medical Board of California limits your activities to the following:
- A full-time faculty appointment at the University of California, a state university or college, or an accredited or approved educational institution as defined in Section 94310 (a) and (b), of the Education Code.
- Significant ongoing responsibility for teaching or training as demonstrated by the amount of time devoted to such teaching or training or the number of students trained; or
- A significant research effort demonstrated by publications in professional journals or publication of books.
If you are a research psychoanalyst or student research psychoanalyst encountering challenges in receiving or maintaining your California registration, you need a seasoned license attorney to represent your interests. Call Rose Law to speak to an attorney at (800) 456-3767.
