Any disciplinary allegation against a Professional License is a serious matter. Physicians, dentists, nurses, psychologists, and other health care providers have a vested interest in protecting that license.
During law school, Mr. Segeleon had the opportunity to serve as a legal clerk at the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. It was at that time that his interest was piqued regarding the process, administration, and discipline of professional licenses. During his tenure at the Board, Mr. Segeleon had the opportunity to participate daily in the internal machinations of the KBML. Because Mr. Segeleon is married to a physician, and has over 20 years of experience defending medical professionals we understand the importance of protecting your license before your particular Board and in a Court of Law.
Our office defends physicians, nurses, dentists, and other health care professionals who are accused of writing improper prescriptions, using controlled substances, or diverting drugs from the workplace. Mr. Segeleon has extensive experience defending professionals accused of the following, but not limited to:
• ETHICAL VIOLATIONS
• STANDARD OF CARE VIOLATIONS
• CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS
• CREDENTIALING ISSUES
• NATIONAL PRACTITIONER DATA BANK
• SEXUAL ALLEGATIONS
• CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY ISSUES
• SCOPE OF PRACTICE
• CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE DIVERSION
Mr. Segeleon also has extensive experience dealing with the Kentucky Physicians Health Foundation (formerly the Impaired Physicians Program) at the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, as well as the K.A.R.E (Kentucky Alternative Recovery Effort for nurses) at the Kentucky Board of Nursing, both of which deal with chemical dependency issues. He therefore is in a position to offer alternative methods to deal with CD issues.
Only someone who has the first-hand experience and ability should deal with professional licensure issues. Someone like Mr. Segeleon who is familiar and comfortable dealing with the Board Panels, investigators, attorneys, Administrative Law Judges, and other personnel. Likewise it is important to contact us as early as possible in the licensure disciplinary process to have the greatest likelihood of success.
