Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group Successfully Defends Cardiologist Against Negligence Accusation

Henry Fenton successfully represented a cardiologist (a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Cardiology), who was falsely accused of practice below the standard of care and acts of negligence during his treatment of three patients. After presentation of the evidence in support and in defense of the charges against the cardiologist, at a hearing before an administrative law judge, the Medical Board adopted a decision determining that the criticisms of the cardiologist and the charges against him were without merit. The Board dismissed the accusation against him. Earlier in the year, Henry Fenton and Nick Jurkowitz successfully represented a neurosurgeon in a similar hearing, defending against an accusation seeking revocation of the neurosurgeon’s medical license on the basis of alleged repeated acts of negligence. The accusation in that matter was dismissed, as well. The cardiologist and neurosurgeon had medical staff privileges at the same hospital and, in each instance, the criticisms leading up to the rejected Medical Board charges against them emanated from competitors, raising concern about anticompetitive motivation.
