SEMINOLE, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Medical Board announced on Friday that 55 doctors statewide have been disciplined recently including one from Seminole. 

The TMB says on August 31, Michael Quealy Watson M.D. entered an agreed order with the Board requiring him to "undergo an independent psychiatric evaluation."  He also agreed to follow up treatment if necessary and pay a $2,000 penalty.

The TMB says, "Dr. Watson engaged in unprofessional conduct and behaved in a disruptive manner." 

Specific details of the August agreement are not available on the TMB website but Dr. Watson was the subject of a public reprimand by the Board in 2002 for making "profane, sexual and lewd" comments to staff and patients at the hospital in Seminole.
