HEALTH CARE LICENSING, DISCIPLINE & REINSTATEMENT
For decades, health professionals across the state of Michigan have trusted James W. Burdick to save their licenses or have them reinstated.
Jim Burdick was a member of the Michigan Board of Medicine for nearly a decade and has a hard-earned and deep understanding the health care system inside and out. Since leaving the Board of Medicine, he has carefully and skillfully created individualized programs for personal rehabilitation and redemption, leading to successful petitions for reinstatement for a wide range of health professionals.
EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, AN UNMATCHED TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS
By law, medical, dental, pharmaceutical and other health professional boards are required to investigate every public or private allegation made against a health professional. Apart from “standard of care” investigations, one of the most common subjects of investigation for medical doctors and other health care providers is substance abuse. Jim Burdick has successfully represented health professionals who have developed substance abuse problems or suffered criminal convictions — or both.
RESOLVING HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS’ SUBSTANCE ABUSE ISSUES
In Michigan, the Health Professional Recovery Program (HPRP) exists to assist professionals who require substance abuse treatment. Unfortunately, sometimes those who don’t even need such supervision get stuck with monitoring contracts of two to three years. Jim Burdick can help you right those wrongs.
Explaining to the appropriate board any and all details of your exemplary past, as well as how you propose to fix any problems, will provide more relief toward coming to a resolution. Ultimately, the goal is to avoid a complaint altogether or minimize the penalties, and at the very least to get your license reinstated if suspension occurs.
