Gov. Greg Abbott thought twice after appointing a leader of a health care board because of concerns about the doctor’s history.
On May 12, Gov. Abbott sent out a press release detailing the appointment of Dr. Daniel Brudnak to the Texas Board of Acupuncture Examiners.
Dr. Dan Brudnak of Gorman is a private practice family medicine and acupuncture physician. He’s a fellow and diplomat of the American Academy of Family Practice and diplomat of the American Board of Medical Acupuncture.
On June 21, he resigned after details emerged from his past.
In 2011, the State Medical Board cited him for inappropriately prescribing stimulants and not keeping appropriate records.
The governor’s Press Secretary John Wittman said, “After our office was made aware of the seriousness of these violations, Dr. Brudnak tendered his resignation and we accepted it.”
In his letter of resignation, Dr. Brudnak mentioned his missteps.
