Dallas Physician Suspended by Texas Medical Board

Updated with comments from Methodist McKinney president Joe Minissale. 

The Texas Medical Board has temporarily suspended Dr. Gerald Patrick Gibson because his practice poses a threat to public welfare. The board found that he violated his Texas Physician Health Program agreement that said he must not use controlled substances.

The panel discovered evidence that Gibson suffers from a mental or physical condition that doesn’t allow him to safely practice medicine. The license was suspended without notice, and will remain in place until the board takes further action.

Multiple online directories list Gibson as an emergency medicine doctor based in McKinney. Reviews of his practice describe Gibson working at the Methodist McKinney emergency department. A review said, “I don’t know if Dr. Gibson is a good doctor, but he was extremely condescending and completely lacked compassion during my visit to the ER. Terrible experience. So much so, that out of spite, I will be switching to a different hospital for my upcoming procedures.”

According to Joe Minissale, President of Methodist McKinney Hospital,  Gibson worked at Methodist McKinney from August 2016 to August 2017 and had minimal shifts, resigning in August 2017 in good standing.
