Overcoming Obstacles: How Doctors Fought to Regain Their Licenses and Rebuilt Their Professional Lives

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Jul 28, 2023 | 0 Comments

Losing your medical license is devastating.

After all, that license is your lifeline to your ability to practice, bring home a paycheck, and enjoy your hard-earned professional reputation. Yet it can be heartbreakingly easy to lose your license, which leaves many doctors wondering what to do after a career setback.

Fortunately, if you're in this situation, you're not alone. Many doctors have been able to overcome this type of challenge and find new paths forward.

Resilience, Determination, and a Great Defense Can Help You Rebound

In our years of assisting medical professionals through license issues, we've helped many people rebuild their careers. We've watched doctors find a way to fight back after significant setbacks.

And we've seen:

  • Doctors face license suspension after medical errors choose to learn from their mistakes, dedicate themselves to improving patient safety, and become patient safety advocates to continue doing good within the medical community
  • Doctors experience allegations of professional misconduct, dive into therapy, understand the factors contributing to their missteps, and invest in personal growth before successfully regaining their licenses
  • Doctors whose licenses were in danger due to excessive vaccine exemptions address the concerns raised by their states' medical boards, revise their practices, and move forward with their licenses intact

The important thing, here, is to know what to do (and to do it quickly). Of course, that's easier said than done — which is why you should never try to weather these storms alone.

Facing a Similar Situation? Here's What You Need to Know

If we look at each of the above stories, we can identify several recurrent themes. When doctors today face license revocation or suspension, it may be a good idea to consider:

  1. Committing to personal and professional growth
  2. Leveraging all of the support systems available
  3. Being open to alternative career paths (even temporarily)

However, the #1 thing that doctors facing license suspensions need to do is this:

Retain the experienced Professional License Defense Team at the Lento Law Firm. Doctors who regained their licenses did so after working with professional license defense attorneys. That's precisely what we do here.
