Canyon Doctor's Medical License Suspended

A Canyon doctor's license to practice medicine is suspended by the Texas Medical Board.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the medical board says they temporarily suspended the license for Dr. Rodney Norman Dotson because he violated a previous disciplinary order. They say Dotson was ordered in February of last year to take the state-required Special Purpose Exam, which he failed to do.

The medical board also says they have a pending complaint that Dotson failed to practice medicine in a professional manner consistent with public health and welfare.
