If a Doctor Gets a DWI, What Are the Consequences?


How the Medical Board Usually Treats a DWI in Missouri

Many doctors worry about the risk of losing their job and their professional license after a DWI arrest. When meeting with a doctor for a consultation in a DWI case, the first questions asked are: “Will I lose my job?” and “How will this affect my medical license?” Doctors have far more at stake in in this situation than the general public. Their job, license, and professional reputation are all a concern.

The facts and circumstances surrounding a DWI arrest, and the history of the individual involved, are important factors when dealing with the possible suspension of a medical license. My firm has represented doctors in the criminal case and also in the investigation by the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts. At the bottom of this page there is a link to the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts website for further information.

As all doctors know, knowledge is power so please take advantage of the many useful pages of information about DWI defense on this website. You can also call my office and ask for a copy of my book “Fear of the Unknown: A Guide to Surviving a DWI in Missouri.” The book is available on Amazon, but if you call my office I will mail you a copy so you can have a better understanding of Missouri DWI laws and how they may impact your case.

If you or a loved one have been arrested or charged for Driving While Intoxicated, then call our office at 314.409.2659 so we can discuss your case and answer all of your questions. You can also reach the office by filling out this form, and we will call you to answer your questions.
