Peer review, when done properly, is an essential tool for ensuring a physician’s performance meets the standard of care. But the process is complex and the actions of the peer review committee can often lead to litigation by the affected physician. Additionally, Texas law imposes certain confidentiality requirements on the documents and information provided to the peer review committee. Whether you are a physician serving on a peer review committee or you are a practitioner and your performance has been called into question, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process.
