Removal of an Acupuncturist’s License

In an effort to seek relief from pain, promote health, improve fertility or cure certain diseases, many people enlist the care of acupuncturists, making the practice of acupuncture an extremely important medical field. As is true of other medical professionals, acupuncturists have a set of professional standards which they must meet in order to qualify for and maintain a legal license to practice. According to state law, an acupuncture practitioner may be denied a license or have their license revoked for a number of issues, causing their livelihood to be threatened.

What May Cause Your License to Be Revoked

According to Texas state law, under the Occupations Code, there are several reasons for which an acupuncturist may be denied or lose a license. Some of these reasons include:

  • Use of drugs to the extent where it is deemed dangerous to your patients
  • Being deemed mentally incompetent
  • Having been convicted of a crime that violates standards of community justice and morality
  • Making fraudulent use of a license

If you are facing charges on any of these or other violations of the professional code of conduct, it may be in your best interest to contact an experienced professional license defense lawyer.
