Pomonis receives disciplinary action from the Texas Medical Board
from staff reports
Dr. Nick Spero Pomonis, of Orange, received disciplinary action from the Texas Medical Board on June 12, according to a press release.
Pomonis is required to complete at least 16 hours of continuing medical education within one year.
The classes are divided into eight hours in prescribing controlled substances and eight hours in treating chronic pain.
The Board found Pomonis failed to meet the standard of care for a patient and depression including ignoring possible abuse warranting a better assessment of the patient’s risk for substance abuse and termination if the patient continued to refuse to provide test samples.
The Texas Medical Board disciplined 40 licensed physicians during the June meeting. Pomonis was the only physician listed from the Orange area.
