License of Psychiatrist Suspended for Sexually Inappropriate Behavior

Posted under Uncategorized

A psychiatrist in Beaumont, Texas recently had his license temporarily suspended after he allegedly engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with some of his patients.

According to reports, the psychiatrist went to a patient's house uninvited and told her that she needed a boyfriend to treat her depression, rather than medication. In another incident, the psychiatrist was accused of showing a patient's mother written statements that were sexual in nature. Because of these incidences, the Texas Medical Board revoked the man's license to pratice psychiatry.

Inquiries into when the psychiatrist would be allowed to practice medicine again yielded differing answers. An employee of the psychiatrist said that he would regain his license in April. However, the Texas Medical Board refuted that statement and said they did not know when he would regain his license.
