A Dickinson physician and a Cypress physician’s assistant have been indicted by a grand jury for operating a “pill mill” out of Texas Pain and Medical Management in The Woodlands. The federal Drug Enforcement Agency as well as the Conroe and Willis police departments assisted in the raid.
The 57-year-old physician faces up to 99 years in prison on first-degree felony charges. According to Your Houston News, the doctor falsified information on a Texas Medical Board certificate to run a pain management clinic.
The other man, a 64-year-old physician’s assistant, faces up to 20 years in prison on second-degree felony charges for operating the clinic, a violation of state law.
