If you’re like most physicians, you’ve dedicated your career to giving quality patient care. You keep up with the latest developments in your field, you follow all recordkeeping requirements, and you believe every decision you make for your patients is in their best interest. Unfortunately, physicians can get stuck with a Texas Medical Board (TMB) complaint even if they don’t feel they did anything wrong and they followed the standard of care. An improper response to a TMB complaint can be disastrous for your practice and reputation. Oftentimes a physician will respond to a complaint with more information than necessary, which only widens the scope of the inquiry and the potential liability exposure. An improperly handled response can result in time away from your practice, costly fines, and the suspension or revocation of your license.
