    • Summary: Paul, Daniel Joseph MD License # 25992

      Nature of Complaint

      The physician has been disciplined by the Virginia Board of Medicine.

      Action Taken

      The physician entered into a Consent Order with the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners in which the physician agrees to the following and is not limited to the following.

      • The physician’s medical license #25992 is Reprimanded.
      • The physician must pay the actual and reasonable costs of prosecuting this case; said costs not to exceed $2,000.00.

      The Board takes this action in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the State of Tennessee.

    • State: Tennessee
    • Noncompliance with a Professional Rule  (8/2/2010)
    • Action Taken: Reprimand
    • Summary: Dr. Daniel Joseph Paul; License # 0101051529

      Nature of Complaint:

      The physician during 2008-2009 served as the medical director of Med Trim Rx, a weight loss clinic, in Bristol, Virginia. The physician was in charge of overseeing employees, reviewing all charts, determining patient appropriateness for weight loss, and preparing prescription orders.

      The physician from December 2008 to December 2009 prescribed phentermine to five patients for weight reduction without : performing and recording an appropriate history and physical examination, reviewing the results of laboratory work; testing thyroid function upon the initiation of therapy; reviewing the results of an electrocardiogram within ninety days of the initiation of therapy; and documenting an exercise and diet program. The physician also failed to maintain accurate and complete records regarding his care and treatment of the five patients.

      The physician is now aware of the Board's laws and regulations related to pharmacotherapy and has made significant changes in his practice to ensure compliance. The physician has also integrated these changes into all of his practices within Virginia and Tennesse.

      Action Taken:

      The physician has been issued a Reprimand by the Virginia Board of Medicine. The physician's license shall be subject to the following terms and conditions:

      • The physician within thirty days shall provide the Board with written certification that the physician has read and shall comply with the laws governing the practice of medicine and surgery (Title 54.1, Chapter 29 of the Code); and the Regulations Governing the Practice of Medicine, Osteopathy, Podiatry, and Chiropractic (18 VAC 85-20-10 et seq.).
      • The physician's practice within six months shall be subject to an unannounced inspection by an inspector/investigator of the Department of Health Professions. The inspection shall include a review of the physician's office, staffing, medical records, and drug records. The Board shall also review copies of ten complete patient records to determine the physician's compliance with the Board's laws and regulations.

      March 4, 2011-Terms Terminated

      The physician has complied with the terms and conditions of the 08-02-2010 Order. The Virginia Board of Medicine has reviewed the report regarding the 01-18-2011 inspection. The Board has terminated the terms placed on the physician's license. The physician currently has a full and unrestricted license in the State of Virginia.
