Review Kathy Butler

About Me

I work exclusively in the health care area, representing health care providers of all types: health care systems, freestanding hospitals, ancillary service providers, physician groups and individual physicians. My goal is to help my clients be successful while operating within the complex regulatory framework that exists in the health care industry.

Specialties: Regulatory compliance, including Stark Law, fraud and abuse, state regulatory and accreditation compliance; transactional work, medical staff disciplinary and peer review matters, risk management and operational issues, state and federal licensure and certification issues.

Disclaimer: "The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements."
