TMB suspends Houston physician

On April 20, 2020, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended, without notice, the Texas medical license of Brett McCormack Cordes, 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. Cordes currently suffers from a likely impairment related to the use or diversion of controlled substances that makes him a threat to patient or public safety.
 
A temporary suspension hearing with notice will be held as soon as practicable with 10 days' notice to Dr. Cordes, unless the hearing is specifically waived by Dr. Cordes.
 
The temporary suspension remains in place until the Board takes further action.
