Health Care Professionals


Health Care Professionals

In an ever increasing maze of regulation and cutbacks in reimbursements, physicians, dentists and other health care professionals have unique business and personal legal needs. Unfortunately, many law firms focus on representing hospitals, institutional providers, and the “big players” in the health care industry, whose interests are often adverse to the individual providers. Along the way, the health care professional has often been an afterthought in terms of addressing his or her needs, leaving them without counsel capable of and committed to representing their best interests. At Carlile Patchen & Murphy, we recognize the need for physicians and dentists to have “their” counsel who, like the healthcare professionals we serve, will provide their clients with the continuity of attention, care and expertise they deserve.

Advocates for Our Medical Professional Clients

The lawyers of Carlile Patchen & Murphy, embrace the opportunity to be advocates for their physician, dentist and other healthcare clients. Our goal is to exclusively serve their best interests, and we have extensive expertise and experience to be the “go to” firm for healthcare providers. Our lawyers understand the special needs and the challenges providers must face in a world of health care that has become increasing tilted to favor interests other than those of the healthcare profession.

Understanding the Business Of Medicine

In addition to being providers of care, professional practices are true businesses. Like any business, specialized care and attention are needed to maximize opportunity and avoid risk. It is critical for legal counsel to both understand what our healthcare professional clients need and have the expertise and experience to address those needs in a cost effect manner.
