TMB suspends San Antonio psychiatrist
On October 4, 2013, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas medical license of San Antonio psychiatrist Shawna Mohney Deeves, M.D., after determining that Dr. Deeves’ aggressive conduct and documented deteriorating mental state demonstrated that Dr. Deeves poses a continuing threat to public health and
The Board found Dr. Deeves has been diagnosed with significant psychiatric illness and that her communications with other physicians as well as the staff of the Texas Physician Health Program have been delusional and threatening.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days’ notice to Dr. Deeves, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Deeves. The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
