If you’re a doctor in California, you SHOULD form a medicine professional corporation taxed as an S-Corporation as you cannot open like a traditional LLC.
California law prohibits doctors from forming LLCs or a traditional corporation for their medical practices. Instead, you must register as a Professional Corporation.
If done incorrectly, your Professional Corporation can be rejected by the Secretary of State, leaving you vulnerable to potential lawsuits and fines from various government agencies. You may even face discipline from the Medical Board of California.
