BROWNFIELD, TX (KCBD) -

Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration raided a Brownfield doctor's office on Tuesday morning. 

Agents from Dallas and Lubbock worked together to serve a federal warrant at Dr. Dennis Tedford's office at the Brownfield Regional Medical Center Clinic located at 703 E. Felt Street. 

Agents arrived around 8 a.m. on Tuesday and stayed until noon, taking box after box out of Tedford's office.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 contacted the DEA for comment and we were redirected to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas. A paralegal specialist told us her office could not confirm or deny any investigation.

Covenant Health released this statement, "We are aware of the DEA's investigation in Brownfield involving Dr. Dennis Tedford. We are closely monitoring the situation and helping out in any way that we can. As of right now, we have no more information to provide."

Tedford is not the only physician who practices at that location, but an employee posted a sign on the door stating the clinic would be closed for the rest of the day. 

According to the Texas Medical Board, Tedford has not faced any actions or license restrictions. 

Tedford graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 1986 and specializes in family medicine and gynecology. 

He has privileges at the Brownfield Regional Medical Center, which neighbors his office.

According to the Texas Medical Board, physicians may optionally report honors, which are not verified by the board but are included with the doctor's licensing information.

Tedford reported he served as the director of the pharmacy, director of the emergency room, director of obstetrics and chief of medical staff for the Brownfield Regional Medical Center.
