Texas Medical Board Disciplines Lubbock Ob-Gyn

At a meeting earlier this month, the Texas Medical Board took disciplinary action against 50 licensed physicians, including one practicing on the South Plains.

On February 8, the Board and Dana Phillips, M.D. entered into an Agreed Order requiring that Dr. Phillips complete 10 hours of continuing medical education in risk management. The action was based on Dr. Phillips' failure to disclose reasonably foreseeable risks of a breech presentation in a patient 38 weeks pregnant with multiple fetuses.

Dr. Phillips also failed to document that the patient was given adequate information about the high risk nature of  her pregnancy.
