Early this month, Kevin Williams, M.D. voluntarily surrendered his medical license. The Division audited Dr. Williams in 2016, and found that he prescribed compound medications which were not reasonable and/or medically necessary for his patients, and that he failed to follow the Division's fee and treatment guidelines. Dr. Williams was ordered to pay an administrative penalty of $10,000.00, to cease and desist from prescribing compound medications as routine practice in the Texas Workers’ Compensation system, and to attend further record keeping courses. 

The Texas Medical Board also investigated Dr. Williams for his excessive compound drug prescribing practices. Rather than face continued investigation, Dr. Williams agreed to surrender his license. In the Board Order, Dr. Williams neither admits nor denies the accusations, but rather, he chooses to voluntarily surrender his Texas Medical License in lieu of further disciplinary proceedings. The voluntary surrender of his license becomes effective on March 29, 2019. 

Dr. Williams may petition the Texas Medical Board to reissue his Texas Medical License in one year.
