Tampa Physical Therapist License Lawyer
Like other members of the medical community, an individual desiring to practice physical therapy in Florida must first possess a valid license issued by the Florida Board of Physical Therapy. When a person possesses such a license, it is an indication to members of the public and other professionals that the holder of the license possesses the education, knowledge, and experience the Board believes to be necessary to competently treat patients. Obtaining and maintaining this license, then, is critical, and the Tampa physical therapist license lawyer at Law Offices of David P. Rankin, P.A. can aid those whose application has been denied, who are unable to successfully renew their license with the Board, and/or those whose license is in jeopardy due to an allegation of misconduct or unprofessional conduct.
Reasons Why You May Have a Licensing Issue with the Board
In general, the Board of Physical Therapy may refuse to issue, decline to renew, and/or suspend or revoke a license if the Board believes that the licensee or applicant is not qualified to practice physical therapy. The Board may reach such a conclusion if it believes or has evidence to suggest:
- The applicant for a license to practice physical therapy has not met the minimum requirements established to obtain the license;
- The holder of a valid license has not demonstrated to the Board that he or she is eligible to have his or her license renewed (perhaps, for example, because the individual has not satisfied continuing education requirements);
- The applicant or license holder has engaged in the unauthorized practice of physical therapy, has allegations of misconduct that have been filed against him or her (from a former patient or fellow physical therapist, for example), or has committed a criminal offense.
The Board of Physical Therapy has enacted administrative procedures through which an individual who has licensing issues can seek a review of an application denial or declined renewal and/or defend and resolve allegations of wrongdoing and avoid a license suspension or revocation. Utilizing these procedures effectively to resolve your licensing or disciplinary issue takes the skill and experience possessed by the Law Offices of David P. Rankin, P.A..
