New York medical malpractice attorney's from Levy, Phillips & Konigsberg express concern bout the substantial number of doctors being monitored by the Federation of State Medical Boards's watch list. According to a recent story in the New York Times, 2% of the doctors in the state of New York have been placed on the New York state medical board's watch list. This study includes professional misconduct by physicians as well as medical malpractice and negligence. Attorneys from Levy, Phillips and Konigsberg commented on this recent development and are outraged with this growing problem.
Now, thanks to the internet, the public has access to information regarding cases involving medical negligence and misconduct which attorneys point out can be found at nydoctorprofile.com. Many doctors on this list are being monitored for sexual misconduct, which can also lead to a temporary suspension of their medical license.
"The sheer number of medical professionals in the State of New York that are under review appalls us. As experienced New York medical malpractice attorney's we continually receive inquiries from families of patients injured by medical negiligence or misconduct and who seek advice on pursuing action against physicians," said Diane Paolicelli of Levy, Phillips and Konigsberg
According to the article, "doctors are typically monitored for three years if they have a professional conduct problem, and for five years under the impairment program which is contracted out to the Medical Society of the State of New York."
