Prominent doctor agrees to lose medical license, updated info from TMB

By James Clark | email

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) – A well-known Plainview doctor agreed to voluntarily surrender his medical license according to information released late Wednesday afternoon by the Texas Medical Board.

Dr. Joseph Jack Horn "entered into an Agreed Voluntary Surrender Order in which Dr. Horn permanently surrendered his Texas license in lieu of further legal proceedings," according to a TMB news release.  Dr. Horn did so on April 9th but other details pertaining to the agreed order were not available in the original news release.

Late Thursday morning the TMB returned a call from KCBD NewsChannel 11 and provided additional information.  Official records say Dr. Horn faced allegations that arise out of "physical limitations that render him unable to practice medicine."  The report also notes his age as 84 years. 

Aside from a delinquent payment for renewal of his license in September of 2001, Dr. Horn had a perfect record up until now, according to the public verification section of the TMB website.

Dr. Horn was once the chief of staff of the former Plainview Hospital, and was recognized in the Plainview Centennial Circle of Honor for his many contributions to the community, according to a 2008 article the Plainview Daily Herald.

Horn was also lauded at that time for his prison ministry at the Formby-Wheeler unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and being active with the First Methodist Church in Plainview.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 will seek further information pertaining to the reasons that the TMB might have considered legal action against Dr. Horn.
