A Sulphur Springs Doctor has been disciplined by the Texas Medical Board.
On May 1, 2014, the Board approved a Final Order publicly reprimanding Don Martin O'Neal, M.D., and requiring Dr. O'Neal to within one year and three attempts pass the Medical Jurisprudence Exam; within one year complete at least 16 hours of CME in ethics; and pay an administrative penalty of $10,000 within 60 days. The Board found Dr. O'Neal pled guilty to a first degree felony of misapplication of fiduciary property and was placed on deferred adjudication under community supervision for that offense. The action was based on the findings of an administrative law judge at the State Office of Administrative Hearings. This order resolves a formal complaint filed at the State Office of Administrative Hearings. Dr. O'Neal has 20 days from the service of the order to file a motion for rehearing.
