Sexual Allegations Stir Reaction from Gynecologist's Patients

As we reported on Wednesday, Dr. Aurelio Miro voluntarily and permanently surrendered his medical license to the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners. He did it because of a recent allegation of improper sexual contact with a female patient. But some of his patients do not believe he could have done this.

Dr. Aurelio Miro has a website on the Internet and a place where patients of his can post comments. Since we broke the story, Dr. Miro's homepage has had 17 new posts from those patients who were astounded by the news. Some had this to say about Dr. Miro. "You will be greatly missed," "I am deeply saddened by the terrible allegations," "He has always been professional," "His care was superb," "Dr. Miro is the greatest doctor," "You were a wonderful physician," "I truly believe you are being falsely accused," and "I don't believe anything about the allegations about him."

NewsChannel 11 spoke with the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners in Austin, and they tell us Dr. Miro had a chance to protest the allegation of improper sexual contact, but he chose not to. He chose to voluntarily surrender his medical license all together and permanently. He can no longer practice in Texas, and more than likely, will not be able to practice anywhere else in the U.S.

Dr. Miro was not able to be reached for comment. We contacted the Lubbock District Attorney's office and there are no charges as of Thursday.
