Professional Name Presentation

All licensed physicians in the state of Texas are required to professionally use the name under which they are licensed with the Texas Medical Board. Using any other name may confuse or mislead the public and may be considered by the Board to be unprofessional conduct as defined by the Texas Occupations Code Chapter 164.052(a)(5). Any physician who wishes to change the professional name under which he/she practices must first satisfy certain formalities and documentation. Any physician who is found to be using a name, other than the one that the physician is licensed under, may be subject to disciplinary action for violation of the above referenced statute.
