If a doctor has been disciplined by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct, why can he still continue to practice medicine?


A: The punishments handed out by OPMC (the Office of Professional Medical Conduct) in New York is varied and depends greatly on the allegations against the doctor and the conclusions reached by their investigation. Punishments range from a slap on the wrist, to a written admonishment. Others require a doctor to undergo additional training or be supervised while performing specific procedures. If warranted, a physician's license can be revoked if the health and well being of the public is at risk.
