Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Texas Medical Board has released their December 2013 disciplinary actions report which shows one East Texas doctor is facing action for quality of care and one has voluntarily revoked their license to avoid any further disciplinary proceedings.
On Friday, December 6, the Board and David Warren Buller, M.D., a Family Practitioner in Gilmer, entered into a Mediated Agreed Order requiring Dr. Buller to within one year complete at least 20 hours of CME, divided as follows:
12 hours in pain management including identifying drug-seeking behavior
- Eight hours in medical record keeping; and within 60 days pay an administrative penalty of $500.
The Board found Dr. Buller failed to follow Board guidelines for the treatment of pain and failed to keep adequate medicate records.
The same say, the Board and William Edward Brown, M.D., of Tyler, entered into an Agreed Order of Voluntary Revocation in which Dr. Brown agreed to the revocation of his Texas medical license to avoid any further disciplinary proceedings.
Dr. Brown was under investigation by the Board related to allegations dealing with his possible impairment and failure to abide by the abstinence from alcohol provisions contained in a Texas Physicians Health Program testing agreement and Board interim testing agreement.
