TMB suspends Humble, TX physician
HUMBLE, February 18, 2016 – On January 12, 2016, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas physician in training permit of Ricky Joe Louis Haywood-Watson, II, M.D., after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The suspension was effective immediately.
The Board panel found that Dr. Haywood-Watson was arrested by the Harris County Sheriff’s Department on January 8, 2016 due to a probable cause finding that Dr. Haywood-Watson committed the following felonies: super aggravated sexual assault of a child, continuous sexual abuse of a child, and two counts of indecency with a child.
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Dr. Haywood-Watson, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Haywood- Watson.
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
