As a Fort Worth Medical Licensing and Doctor license defense attorney, I read this story with alarm. The Texas Attorney General (OAG) filed lawsuit against a Grapevine Texas women’s health clinic for selling Mirena intrauterine devices (IUDs) that were not approved for sale in the United States.
The lawsuit names Women’s Integrated Healthcare, P.A. and six of its physicians as defendants: Angela L. Cope, M.D.; Barbara Coulter-Smith, D.O.; Katrina E. Allen, M.D.; Courtney Walters, M.D.; Monica E. Lopez, M.D.; and Wendy A. Kendrick, D.O.
In December 2009, the defendants voluntarily stopped selling and administering the unapproved IUDs. The Office of the Attorney General is seeking a court order requiring that the defendants only purchase and sell FDA-approved IUDs, and will impose hefty civil penalties for violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (TDTPA) and the Texas Health and Safety Code.
You can also bet that the Texas Medical Board will weigh in with penalties, license complaints and sanctions.
