Woman files complaint against Burleson doctor to Texas Medical Board

A woman from Burleson recently filed a complaint with the Texas Medical Board against a doctor who prescribed her son a spanking.

The woman brought her 5-year-old son to Huguley Medical Center in January because he had an infection in his finger. During an examination, the doctor allegedly asked what the boy’s race was. When the woman told him that her son was bi-racial, she said that he became angry and left the room. The doctor then wrote a prescription for the boy that said, “Apply large paddle to bottom of child anytime he needs it.”

After the woman complained about the doctor’s actions, he was fired by Huguley Medical Center and the facility offered to pay for her medical bill. The Texas Medical Board has not yet commented on this case.
