Board suspends Lubbock doctor's license, citing 'threat to public welfare'

Posted: Updated:

The Texas Medical Board has suspended a Lubbock family doctor's license to practice.

It claims his practice in medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.

The board reports Dr. David Vermillion violated a protective order then failed to disclose it to the board.

The suspension filing indicates Vermillion also didn't stop using drugs or alcohol, nor was his community supervision revoked for his conduct.

Vermillion was convicted of violating a protective order in August.

Court documents indicate he was arrested in October for violating his probation.

The state's license suspension is effective until further action is taken.
