On May 5, 2015, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily restricted, with notice, the Texas medical license of Stanton Clark Packard, M.D., after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The restriction was effective immediately.

The restriction requires Dr. Packard to surrender his Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Controlled Substances Registration Certificates and provide proper forms of notification of surrender within seven days. Dr. Packard shall not reregister or otherwise obtain Controlled Substances Registrations until he has received written authorization from the Board. Additionally, Dr. Packard shall not be permitted to supervise or delegate prescriptive authority to a physician assistant or advanced practice nurse, or supervise a surgical assistant.

The Board panel found that Dr. Packard has engaged in a pattern of delegating prescriptive authority to nurse practitioners and physician assistants that have non-therapeutically prescribed controlled substances to multiple patients.

Dr. Packard failed to adequately supervise his midlevel providers and admitted that he failed to use due diligence in conducting background checks on the midlevels he previously supervised or is currently supervising. Had Dr. Packard exercised the necessary due diligence, he would have known of the midlevels’ prior disciplinary histories that reflected their lack of competence.

Dr. Packard’s delegation to physician extenders that engage in non-therapeutic prescribing makes him a continuing threat to the public health and welfare.

The temporary restriction remains in place until the Board takes further action.
