Practicing Medicine without a license
Good intentions are not a good enough defense to charges of practicing medicine without a license. You need to hire an attorney.
Even medical experts disagree with one another about the effectiveness of various treatments and the best course of action for various diseases and conditions. Can you imagine the chaos—and the danger—patients would face if anyone with an interest in medicine started offering advice and care?
This is exactly why the law requires anyone and everyone who wants to practice medicine to obtain a license. And because the danger to patients from unlicensed practitioners may be grave, the state imposes strict penalties for the crime of unauthorized practice of medicine. These penalties include:
- Misdemeanor penalties of up to 1 year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines
- Felony penalties of up to 3 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
- PLUS possible disciplinary consequences
If you have been accused of practicing medicine without a license, you need to act quickly to defend yourself against vigorous prosecution and aggressive imposition of these strict penalties.
