Physician Assistant License Defense

Protecting Your California Physician Assistant License

If you are a Physician Assistant and receive a letter from the Physician Assistant Committee of the California Medical Board informing you that it is contemplating an adverse action against your license such as a denial, suspension or revocation, you need an experienced professional licensing defense attorney. You may think that you can challenge the investigation on your own, or that if you ignore it, then it will go away.  But the investigation will not go away by itself, and although it may seem easy to defend yourself, you are risking your livelihood and the career you have dedicated numerous years to achieve. The attorneys at the Law Office of Nicole Irmer understand that the issues are serious, and we are dedicated to navigating you through the process with the best possible outcome.
