Board Suspends Donnie Evans, M.D., of Houston

On February 8, 2012, a Disciplinary Panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the license of Donnie Evans, M.D., of Houston after determining that Dr. Evans presents a continuing threat and real danger to the public.

The panel found that Dr. Evans continued to illegally operate a pain clinic, Holland Clinic, in Jacinto City despite his surrender of the clinic's pain management clinic certificate in August 2011.  

In January 2012, investigators with the Texas Medical Board and Federal Drug Enforcement Agency inspected the clinic and found prescription logs that showed Dr. Evans continued to prescribe opioids and other controlled substances including Oxycontin, Hydrocodone, Dilaudid and Fentanyl.

Previously, Dr. Evans entered into an Agreed Order in April 2011 based on his non-therapeutic prescribing of narcotics to 15 patients. Subsequently, Dr. Evans voluntarily surrendered pain management certificates for Holland Clinic and CPR Medical Group in lieu of further disciplinary action.

A temporary suspension hearing, with notice, will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Dr. Evans, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Evans.
