Two indicted for Woodlands “pill mill”

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.

RI Department of Health revokes doctor’s license for alleged sexual misconduct

The Department of Health in Rhode Island has recently revoked the license of a doctor at Pawtuxet Valley Urgent Care after they found merit to a sexual misconduct claim that involved a 70-year-old woman.

According to officials in the case, the woman was having a stethoscopic examination when the doctor ‘touched her breasts’  and ‘partly lowered her pants without informing her’ first.

She claims that this examination was unnecessary because her symptoms were  linked to bronchitis and pneumonia. Officials with the department have stated that the man’s license should be revoked because he is a ‘danger to the public.’

Dallas doctor sued by patient

An 81 year-old Dallas doctor has been slammed with a lawsuit by a former patient who claims he needed emergency surgery following a procedure, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Texas Medical Board records show that the doctor’s medical license was suspended eight years ago after he failed to pass a test of basic clinical knowledge at least two times. He eventually passed the test two years ago and was approved to practice medicine again.

The former patient says his hernia operation lasted eight hours and that he suffered from extreme pain, a severed colon, the loss of a testicle, and internal fecal matter spillage. He says the doctor did not use anesthesia.
