Tyler, Texas (KETK) —
The Texas Medical Board has released their list of their most recently disciplined doctors and three were from East Texas.
Anton Lester, III, D.O., Lic. No. F3204, Tyler - West Houston Family Clinic located at 214 West Houston St, Tyler, TX 75702:
Friday, October 18, the Board and R. Anton Lester, III, D.O., entered into an Agreed Order requiring Dr. Lester to have his practice monitored by another physician for 12 monitoring cycles; within one year complete at least 16 hours of CME, divided as follows: eight hours in risk management and eight hours in ethics; not prescribe, dispense, administer or authorize controlled substances or dangerous drugs to himself for his own use or in his name for use by patients; separate from patient records, Dr. Lester shall maintain a log consisting of a record of every sample of controlled substances or dangerous drugs provided to patients in chronological order by date issued; and pay an administrative penalty of $3,000 within 90 days. The Board found Dr. Lester's medical records were inadequate with the treatment of one patient and that Dr. Lester admitted to prescribing in his name in order to provide medications to his patients.
Lester was also disciplined in February 2012 for operating an unlicensed pharmacy and prescribing "dangerous" drugs or controlled substances without first establishing a "proper professional relationship" with the patient. For this incident, Lester was required to pass the Medical Jurisprudence Exam, complete 10 hours of CME in risk management and pay an administrative penalty of $2,000.

On October 18, 2013, the Board and Gregory Scott Terrell, M.D., entered into an Agreed Order of Suspension, suspending Dr. Terrell's Texas medical license until such time as he appears before the Board and provides clear and convincing evidence that he is competent to safely practice medicine. The Board found Dr. Terrell was arrested on July 31, 2013 for diversion of controlled substances for another person's use.

On October 18, 2013, the Board and Randall Gordon Craig, M.D., entered into an Agreed Order of Voluntary Surrender in which Dr. Craig voluntarily and permanently surrendered his Texas medical license.
