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.
