On October 8, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas medical license of Caesar Mark Capistrano, M.D. (Lic. No. J8943) after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The suspension was effective immediately.
The Board panel found that on September 21, 2020, Dr. Capistrano was charged, along with co-conspirator Tameka Lachelle Noel, M.D., with operating a pill mill which, according to the federal criminal complaint, was recruiting patients from homeless shelters to distribute prescription drugs.
