Amarillo doc loses license

Directly from the Medical Board:

Shelton, Douglas Ray, M.D., Lic. No. J2325, Amarillo
On June 12, 2015, the Board entered a Final Order against Douglas Ray Shelton, M.D., which revoked Dr. Shelton's Texas medical license. The Board found Dr. Shelton engaged in violations of patient-physician boundaries with multiple patients, failed to meet the standard of care with respect to two patients' surgical procedures and their follow up care, failed to maintain adequate medical records, and was the subject of adverse peer review during which Dr. Shelton resigned his hospital privileges in lieu of disciplinary action. The action was based on the findings of two administrative law judges at the State Office of Administrative Hearings. This order resolves a formal complaint filed at the State Office of Administrative Hearings. Dr. Shelton has 20 days from the service of the order to file a motion for rehearing.
