On Monday, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas medical license of Kelly J. Turner, M.D. (Lic. No. L4152).
The Board panel found that Dr. Turner has been arrested multiple times for alcohol-related offenses and that he suffers from a mental and/or physical condition that renders him unable to safely practice medicine.
The suspension was effective immediately after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days’ notice to Dr. Turner, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Turner.
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
