Forney doctor’s license suspended after patient’s death

(The Dallas Morning News) The Texas Medical Board said Tuesday that it has suspended the license of an 88-year-old Forney doctor for improperly prescribing medication, including to a woman who died of an overdose Jan. 1.

Dr. Annie Christine Z. Walker may appeal the temporary suspension, and another disciplinary hearing is set for Monday. Walker could not be reached for comment.

In an order issued Friday, the board said Walker did not keep records on seven patients, plus three family members, to whom she prescribed controlled substances. The order said Walker is physically impaired, is unable to dress herself and unable to walk unassisted but said she still saw about six patients a week.
