The board continued the suspension of Dr. Charles Henry Fischer, accused of sexual abuse and public lewdness, and though Fischer has denied the allegations, he agreed that he would immediately and voluntarily give up his medical license if convicted, the order says.
Fischer’s lawyer, Tony Cobos of Austin, did not return calls Wednesday or Thursday.
The board also ordered Dr. Jane Nelson, a breast surgeon, to take courses in evaluating breast disease and record-keeping after the board alleged that she had failed to “offer a tissue diagnosis” after a patient complained of a bloody discharge. That delayed a breast cancer diagnosis, the board said.
Neither Nelson nor her lawyer, Mark Beaman, returned calls.
