I am physician and Medical board already contacted saying they are investigating a case. But with my habit, for job, I marked everywhere no, no including question of any investigation going on. Now , should I do anything to correct it? Medical board contacted me first, then I filled out application paper for job.
Yes, correct it or turn in your license.
I am an Attorney-at-Law, licensed to practice law only in the state of California. Unless we have both signed a formal retainer agreement, you are not my client, and my discussion of issues does not constitute legal advice. Opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and do not necessarily represent the opinions of those who hold other opinions.
I practice professional responsibility in some other states so I yield to CA counsel on all matters of State Law. If you applied for work AS A PHYSICIAN and you falsified ANYTHING in your app, you are almost certainly subject to discipline. In the states where I do this, you false application would be considered conduct involving moral turpitude or dishonesty and that means revocation or indefinite suspension. "My habit," suggests to me that you had better get to a lawyer quickly, you may have "treatment/Safe Harbor" available to you. If you continue to act like everything's peachy, you will throw away your best opportunity to keep your license. Deception and addiction are inexorably linked. If you take care of the addiction at which you hint, your deception problem will fall away.
Every Good Wish. I know a lot of physicians with long and distinguished careers who have made the right decision at exactly this moment. I'm hoping you are one.
