TMB restricts Houston physician
On January 17, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily restricted, with notice, the Texas medical license of Steven Bryce Inbody, M.D. (Lic. No. G7443), after determining his continuation in the unrestricted practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The restriction was effective immediately.
Dr. Inbody is prohibited from engaging in the treatment of chronic pain as defined by Board rule; shall not possess, prescribe or distribute controlled substances in Texas; and 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 on or around September 18, 2019, Dr. Inbody was arrested on charges of conspiracy to unlawfully distribute and dispense controlled substances and other related charges which resulted in a temporary suspension by the Board. Dr. Inbody surrendered his DEA controlled substances registration, denies the criminal charges and has pleaded not guilty. The Court has prohibited Dr. Inbody from any employment involving the distribution of controlled substances, writing or filling of prescriptions, distributing controlled substances and pre-signing prescriptions.
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
