TAHOKA (KYTX)- On April 22, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas medical license of Charles Carroll Bittle, M.D., after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine would constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare.
The suspension was effective immediately.
The Board found Dr. Bittle, a Tahoka physician, a continuing threat due to inappropriate prescribing of controlled substances to multiple patients.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Dr. Bittle, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Bittle. The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
