AUSTIN (KYTX) - On October 18, 2013, the Board and R. Anton Lester, III, D.O., of Tyler entered into an Agreed Order requiring Dr. Lester to have his practice monitored by another physician for 12 monitoring cycles,

The one year cycles include completion of at least 16 hours of CME, divided as follows:

Eight hours in risk management and eight hours in ethics; not prescribe, dispense, administer or authorize controlled substances or dangerous drugs to himself for his own use or in his name for use by patients; separate from patient records, Dr. Lester shall maintain a log consisting of a record of every sample of controlled substances or dangerous drugs provided to patients in chronological order by date issued; and pay an administrative penalty of $3,000 within 90 days.

The Board found Dr. Lester's medical records were inadequate with the treatment of one patient and that Dr. Lester admitted to prescribing in his name in order to provide medications to his patients.


The TMB issued an order of voluntary surrender to Randall Gordon Craig, M.D.

The Board found Dr. Craig pled guilty to and was convicted of a misdemeanor offense for failing to file a tax return. Dr. Craig requested that the voluntary surrender of his medical license be accepted in lieu of further disciplinary proceedings.

The order was issued October 18,2013.
