On October 23, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Physician Assistant Board temporarily restricted, with notice, the Texas physician assistant license of Thomas Ralph Cook, P.A. (Lic. No. PA05138), after determining his continuation in the unrestricted practice as a physician assistant poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The restriction was effective immediately.
The Board panel found that Mr. Cook has violated the terms and conditions of his 2017 Agreed Order by conducting house calls where he performed physical examinations without a chaperone present as required under the order.
