The Importance of Expert Testimony In A Reinstatement Proceeding

We recently represented a medical doctor who applied to Pennsylvania for a medical license. The doctor's medical license was previously revoked by the State of New York in 1995 for inappropriately touching two patients and a technician as well as several malpractice verdicts against him. Our client reapplied for licensure in New York in 2000 but was denied.
