Medical Board Disciplines Two Texoma Doctors

At its April 6-8, 2011 meeting, the Texas Medical Board disciplined 74 physicians and suspended one pain clinic operational certificate. This news release also contains summaries of actions taken against nine licensees earlier this year.
Ninety-four physician licenses were issued at the April board meeting; 1,981 total have been issued since September 1, 2010, the beginning of FY '11. The average number of days to complete a licensure application following submission of expected documents is 42.  Thirty four percent of the applications were completed within 10 days of submission of expected documents.  

QUALITY OF CARE
 
Fazel, Mohammad Reza, M.D., Lic. No. G1003, Olney    
On April 8, 2011, the Board and Mohammad Reza Fazel, M.D., entered into a Mediated Agreed Order requiring Dr. Fazel to have a physician monitor his practice for eight monitoring cycles; complete within one year 30 hours of CME including 10 hours in medical record-keeping, 10 hours in risk management, and 10 hours in pain management; and pay an administrative penalty of $2,500 within 120 days. The basis for action was Dr. Fazel's failure to treat a patient according to the generally accepted standard of care.

 INADEQUATE MEDICAL RECORDS

Dingler, Chance Wayne, M.D., Lic. No. K0286, Nocona     
On April 8, 2011, the Board and Chance Wayne Dingler, M.D., entered into an Agreed Order requiring Dr. Dingler to complete within one year 12 hours of CME including four hours in risk management, four hours in medical record-keeping and four hours in end-of-life care in a hospital setting. The action was based on Dr. Dingler's failure to maintain adequate medical records for one patient.
