ROUND ROCK, Texas — The Texas Medical Board has temporarily suspended a Round Rock doctor from practice, citing “a continuing threat to public welfare.”

The board found evidence that Willard James Davis II was “impaired” at his workplace at St. David’s Georgetown Hospital. It also found that Davis engaged in "inappropriate behavior" with a patient while working in the emergency department at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa and left the emergency department unattended for extended periods of time.

Before he was suspended, Davis was arrested on April 20 on charges of driving while intoxicated and obstruction or retaliation, according to Williamson County court documents

The board temporarily suspended Davis without notice on May 16. A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held with 10 days notice to Davis, unless he waives the hearing.

The temporary suspension will be in place until the board takes further action.
