Palestine eye doctor loses license

The Texas Medical Board has stripped the license of a Palestine, Texas ophthalmologist after he violated an agreed order he made with the board two years ago.

In 2009, the doctor had his license suspended for nine months after he tested positive for three illegal drugs and possessed demerol. In 2010, he was arrested for his second DWI and had a child in the car with him.

The Texas Medical Board entered an agreed order with him that required that the ophthalmologist abstain from drugs, alcohol, and controlled substances; undergo a psychiatric examination; attend 90 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in 90 days; and participate in the board’s drug screening program. The board did not disclose which term the doctor violated.
