Rep. Michael Burgess
Sen. John Cornyn
Sen. Ted Cruz

February 25, 2013

 Houston physician Donnie Evans, M.D., was temporarily restricted from prescribing Schedule II controlled substances on May 7, 2012, following a Temporary Suspension or Restriction hearing. In addition, Dr. Evans' prescription of Schedule III-IV controlled substances is restricted to acute care/crisis patients.

The Board found that Dr. Evans illegally operated two pain clinics, CPR Medical Group Clinic in Houston and Holland Medical Group Clinic in Jacinto City. Texas Pain Clinic laws require that pain clinic owners not have been subject to disciplinary action for conduct related to prescribing or supplying a controlled substance.

On April 8, 2011, Dr. Evans was sanctioned by the Board for his non-therapeutic prescriptions of narcotic medications to 15 patients. The following August, Dr. Evans surrendered his Texas Pain Management Clinic certificates for the clinics. In January 2012, board staff in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Agency conducted an inspection of Holland Clinic and found that most of Dr. Evans' patients were pain management patients.
