INADEQUATE MEDICAL RECORDS
Brashear, Doyle Hubbard, M.D., Lic. #C4954, Lufkin TX
On April 9, 2010, the Board and Doyle Hubbard Brashear, M.D., entered into an Agreed Order that requires Dr. Brashear, a psychiatrist, to cease treatment of chronic pain patients and complete eight hours of CME in medical record-keeping. The basis for action was Dr. Brashear's failure to maintain adequate medical records, and his failure to follow Board rules on the treatment of pain management.
