Texas Medical Board Restricts McAllen Doctor

Local News

On March 19, a disciplinary panel of the Texas Medical Board temporarily restricted, with notice, the Texas medical license of Eugenio G. Galindo, M.D.  After determining his continuation in the unrestricted practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare. The restriction is effective immediately. 

Dr. Galindo is prohibited from diagnosing, examining or treating female patients or providing any consultation for the treatment of any female patient. This includes delegating the diagnosis, examination or treatment of any female patient to any midlevel providers or unlicensed individuals. Additionally, Dr. Galindo shall have no contact with any of the individual complainants in this matter. 

The Board panel found, based on the evidence, that the allegations pending against Dr. Galindo are serious and supported by sworn testimony before the panel. Dr. Galindo was arrested by the Edinburg Police Department on December 6, 2018, on two charges of sexual assault and one count of attempted sexual assault involving patients and employees. 

The temporary restriction remains in place until the Board takes further action.
