I applied for CA medical license. I have full medical license in NM. I'm doing my fellowship in UNM. My PD put me on probation for professionalism( communication, tardy ) but the probation has been revoked by our GME. When my program director sent the form to the medical board, she put that I would be put on probation. She also mentioned that I was on performance improvement plan before which I successfully completed. My relation with my PD is not good, I do not want to request her to inform the CA board that my probation has been revoked as she can still put even more dirty things though it has been revoked. Our GME informed NM medical board that I am no more on probation but they would not inform CA medical board. n this situation what should I do as I think probation may affect my licen

We are assigned a US Attorney(federal land accident). The attorney is free of charge, but we are afraid the attorney will not be able to help like a private attorney. The federal criminal investigator already collected evidence, interviewed witnesses, family members and visited him in the hospital 2 times. He has not been charged, but he will be taken into custody as soon as he is medically discharged. He does not have any prior records, he only has a medical record showing multiple admits for mental instability (depression,suicidal ideation,long chronic medical history). After sentencing, if found guilty. Can we appeal the case? What are the options?
You need to speak to your lawyer about these issues. Even more importantly, you should not place any further posts on...

It's been more than 9 years and I have not been convicted of another dwi/dui since. Am I able to just reinstate my license like normal since it's been so long? Thanks

I got out of jail my attorney told me to get into treatment for my addictioASAP if I had a problem. I called numerous treatment centers who were all booked with waiting lists up to 4 months. By the grace of God Santa Fe recovery center said they would take me if I was there first thing in the morning so at 6:00 am I took off for medical clearance. My compliance officer kept calling me and told me to be there by 8;00 am which was the 12/31/14 my attorney instructed me to stay just to send the paper work so he could submit it to the judge and have the old warrant they never served squashed. On 1/2/15 the day after the holiday I was picked up by a sheriff at the request of my compliance officer. how she could over power a doctor who did an assessment and found I needed to be inpatient.
The court has more power than your doctor to put in in jail.
I payed my fines,finished counseling but in those 6 months of my probation i never heard word from the treatment center,will i still have to go to treatment and do drug tests after i completed my,6 months probation?
