On March 27, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Physician Assistant Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas physician assistant license of Javier Suarez-Jaramillo, P.A. (Lic. No. PA10788), after determining his continuation in the practice as a physician assistant poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The suspension was effective immediately.
The Board panel found that Mr. Suarez-Jaramillo was emergently referred back to the Board due to a combination of his noncompliance with and further refusal to participate in the Texas Physician Health program testing and his third arrest for Driving While Intoxicated.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days’ notice to Mr. Suarez-Jaramillo, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Mr. Suarez-Jaramillo.
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
