Texas Physician Assistant Board suspends Bryan physician assistant

Updated:

BRYAN (KYTX)- April 16, 2014, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Physician Assistant Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas physician assistant license of William Levi Cooper, P.A., after determining his continuation in practice as a physician assistant would constitute a continuing threat to public welfare.

The suspension was effective immediately.

The Board found Mr. Cooper, who is a physician assistant working in the Public Health Service (PHS) at a Federal Prison Camp (FPC) in Bryan, Texas, had sexual relations with three inmates that were under his care and treatment as patients.

Three patients confirmed sexual acts with Mr. Cooper while under his care and treatment while they were incarcerated and/or subject to federal house arrest. 

A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Mr. Cooper, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Mr. Cooper.

The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action
