What to do (and not do) when you become the subject of a professional licensing or disciplinary investigation:
1. Do not panic.
2. Do not ignore it.
3. Do not hide or destroy evidence.
4. Do not lie to investigators: the coverup is almost always worse than the crime.
5. Do not attack – physically or in print – the client, patient, or complainant who filed the complaint.
6. Do not attack – physically or in print – the board.
7. Be cooperative.
8. Discern the difference between the allegations that are worth contesting and the ones for which you should just apologize and show
9. Find out what your rights are under the rules, regulations, and statutes of your licensing board.
10. Retain counsel to protect your rights, help you comply with your board’s regulations, and represent you before the board.
