Our experience includes successfully guiding individuals who have found themselves unwitting targets of investigation by various Boards. This includes:
- Individuals Providing Dietary and Nutritional Advice
- Health Coaches
- Life Coaches
- PsychologistsProfessional regulatory boards can zealously enforce laws against practice by non-licensed practitioners.
In addition, professional regulatory boards look to whether licensed practitioners have violated their statutory scope of practice boundaries. For example, recently the California Board of Chiropractic Examiners has held hearings on the use of lasers by chiropractors, and in chiropractic treatment of environmental sensitivities (as distinguished from medical treatment of allergies). Seeking experienced health care legal counsel should be your first priority when you are subject to a disciplinary investigation, proceeding, or hearing — even if the grievance or allegation of misconduct appears minor, and even if you are assured off-the-record that the investigation is only a formality. The only material that matters is what is on-the-record. Protect your standing via professional counsel immediately upon receipt of any notification of an investigation.
