Round Rock Physician Faces License Suspension Amidst Misconduct Allegations by Texas Medical Board

A Round Rock doctor was suspended by the Texas Medical Board’s disciplinary panel on Thursday, May 16, for presenting “a continuing threat to public welfare.”

Willard James Davis, D.O. was placed on temporary suspension without warning, which went into effect right away, according to the Texas Medical Board.

According to the board, there was proof that Davis was intoxicated while he was employed at St. David’s Georgetown Hospital. Additionally, it claimed that Davis misbehaved with a patient while working in the emergency room at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa and that she frequently left the room unattended.

Davis was allegedly driving while intoxicated and threatening to physically assault the arresting officer on April 20, according to an affidavit. Davis was then arrested in northwest Austin.

According to the affidavit, about 4:30 in the morning, a 911 caller reported seeing Davis dozing off in his vehicle at the intersection of Anderson Mill Road and the U.S. 183 northbound service road.

Davis was allegedly eating food from a Tupperware container while seated in the driver’s seat when police arrived, “unaware that his vehicle was parked in the middle of this intersection while he was eating his food.”

Davis admitted to having at least three drinks that evening, according to the police, but he failed a sobriety test.

During the transport to the Williamson County Jail, Davis reportedly exhibited hostile behavior, yelled obscenities, and threatened to physically harm the arresting officer.

He was charged with obstruction and retaliation, a third-degree felony, and driving while inebriated, a Class B misdemeanor.

St. David’s HealthCare stated, “The last time Dr. Will Davis worked at any St. David’s HealthCare facility was on January 24, 2024 at St. David’s Georgetown Hospital. He is no longer providing medical services at any of our facilities.”

Unless Davis chooses to waive the hearing, a suspension hearing will take place as soon as feasible with ten days’ notice. The suspension won’t end until the board determines that more action is necessary.
