If you suspect impairment of a health practitioner, you should immediately contact your residency program director or the The Methodist Hospital Practitioner Health Committee at 713-798-4880.
When you call 713-798-4880, you will be connected to an answering service for the Chair of the committee. Please identify that you are calling about an impaired practitioner issue. This message will be retrieved only by a member of the Committee and will be completely confidential.
The Committee evaluates the credibility of all complaints, allegations and concerns, determining whether a physician problem is best addressed through disciplinary measure or via the physician-health route, always monitoring the affected practitioner and the safety of patients until the rehabilitation or any disciplinary process is complete.
