On September 11, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board convened and temporarily restricted, with notice, the Texas medical license of Machelle Elaine Williams, D.O. (Lic. No. K4608), after determining her continuation in the unrestricted practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The restriction was effective September 14, 2020.
Dr. Williams is prohibited from engaging in the practice of medicine, including telemedicine, until she completes an independent medical evaluation by a pre-approved board certified psychiatrist and follows all recommendations made for continued care and treatment. Dr. Williams is also prohibited from supervising or delegating prescriptive authority to a physician assistant or advanced practice nurse or supervising a surgical assistant that is engaged in the practice of clinical medicine. Upon completion of the required evaluation, Dr. Williams will be required to appear before the board and provide evidence and information that adequately indicates she is physically, mentally, and otherwise competent to safely resume practice.
The temporary restriction remains in place until the Board takes further action.
