What can I do if my former doctor lost his license? 13 Answers as of October 15, 2014My former doctor lost his license and closed his practice due to being found guilty of illegal activity. Can he legally respond to a request for a comprehensive narrative medical report? If he can, and does not respond, do I have any recourse?

In order of the questions asked: 1. Nothing, you have no standing to help him regain his license. 2. This is a yes and no answer. Yes, he can respond, but if the opposition knows he has been suspended, the court will not accept it. No, he can not respond as he is no longer considered an 'expert.' 3. Not applicable. Surely, you or your attorney can find another doctor to submit a comprehensive narrative medical report.

What you are seeking, in effect, is a medical opinion from an unlicensed physician. I don't know that you necessarily want or need that. What you'll probably need to do is get your records transferred to another Dr. and get that Dr. to do a narrative. Good luck.

Since he has lost his license to practice his medical narrative report would probably be challenged and prevented from being introduced into evidence. Even if it somehow were admissible the credibility of the doctor would be minimal because of his illegal conduct and the loss of his license.

I would think that his writing a medical report would be the practice of medicine so he can not do it. Certainly his charging you for the report, which is what he would want to do, would be the practice of medicine, so is banned. All you can do is ask him to have his secretary send your file to the new physician you have selected.

No, he cannot write a narrative report because that might come within the purview of "practicing medicine" which he is no longer allowed to do. Your recourse is to obtain all of your records (you are entitled to them) and find a new doctor.

The Doctor would still be able to respond to your request but if he has lost his license the value and even admissibility of the evidence may be compromised. If the Doctor has lost his license and closed his practice I am afraid it is quite doubtful you have any meaningful recourse.
