LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Medical Board made a new agreement with Lubbock doctor David Vermillion on Thursday.

Vermillion's license suspension is now lifted, but he must practice, whether in office or inpatient, in a group or institutional setting approved in advance by the board.

His license was temporarily suspended for impairment due to his use of methamphetamine.

He was arrested in October for violation of a protective order, also a factor in the board pulling his license.

A Levelland doctor, Petros Chapanos is also restricted to administrative medicine after his license was temporarily suspended for a mood disorder.

The doctor must also have a medical evaluation and treatment as the board says he suffers from a mental health condition that at times renders him unable to safely practice medicine.
