Dr. Shawn Gorden El Paso OB/GYN Resigns After License Suspended
After spending several days looking for my doctor, Dr. Shawn Gorden in El Paso, I finally realized why my phone calls and emails were going unanswered.
After calling the Texas Tech OB/GYN department, I was told Dr. Shawn Gorden has resigned. The woman on the phone couldn’t give me any details, but told me he quit practicing medicine a few months ago, specifically saying he “resigned.”
According to the Texas Medical Board website,
ON MAY 2, 2013, A DISCIPLINARY PANEL OF THE TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED, WITHOUT NOTICE, THE TEXAS MEDICAL LICENSE OF SHAWN GORDEN, M.D., AFTER DETERMINING THAT DR. GORDEN’S CONTINUATION IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE PRESENTS A CONTINUING THREAT TO THE PUBLIC WELFARE. THE BOARD FOUND DR. GORDEN FAILED TO COMPLY WITH THE TERMS OF HIS AGREEMENT WITH THE TEXAS PHYSICIAN HEALTH PROGRAM, AND DID NOT COMPLY WITH RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IN-PATIENT TREATMENT FOR SUBSTANCE DEPENDENCY.
If you’re looking for him, you’re not likely to find him. But, maybe this post will save you a little time.
