  • In addition to verification information, physician licensee records or “profiles,” contain consumer-oriented professional background information. Physician profiles include license status, educational background, disciplinary actions, as well as information self-reported by the licensee but not verified by the TMB (e.g. primary practice address, hospital privileges, delegation information, etc.) All verifications also include a description of any action taken by the Board against a licensee.

    Data is updated daily and may be considered the most current information available. Access to this computer system is authorized for the automated verification system only. All other access to this computer system is expressly prohibited. Any unauthorized access or use of this is subject to both civil and criminal penalties.


    The Texas Medical Board also issues several other types of permits, including Surgical Assistants and Pain Management Clinics.

    As required by the 80th Texas Legislature (2007), House Bill 1 (Article VIII-45, Rider 7), the Texas Medical Board assigns a priority status to an applicant for physician licensure who agrees to treat Medicare and Medicaid patients for the five years following the issuance of the physician’s license. Physicians who have signed an agreement with the Board accepting these terms are listed in this section of the website and are identified in the links below by city, name, and specialty. The lists are updated after each meeting of the Texas Medical Board, which occurs five times per year.

  • What information is available on a physician’s Profile?

    Statutory regulations require the TMB to maintain a profile on each licensed physician. This profile information is gathered in conjunction with the license registration and is available to the public through our online verification database. The Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 154.006 requires that information be made available through the physician profile system. In addition to the statutorily required information, the TMB has adopted rules (Chapter 173) regarding the contents of the physician profile system. Due to concern expressed by licensees regarding identity theft and the public disclosure of exact dates of birth, the TMB no longer includes exact dates of birth in our data products, online verification databases or verbal verifications. We do however continue to include birth year.

    When I search for my physician, I get a “No records Match” message. Does my physician have a license in Texas?

    You may be entering too much information in your search. Try entering in only the last name and first initial, or only the last name and the city where they practice. If you still have issues, please contact us at (512) 305-7010 for a verbal verification.

    I’m looking for a physician of a particular specialty. Does the “Look up a License” system let me do that?

    Yes. Select a license type of “Physician” and a list of Specialties will appear for you to choose from. You can also narrow your search by entering in the city you would prefer.

    The “Look up a License” system will not let me verify the temporary license of a physician assistant. How can I get this verification?

    Unfortunately, at this time temporary physician assistant licenses are not available for verification online. Please contact us at (512) 305-7010 for a verbal verification.

    My physician’s profile says “Licensure Status: None". Does my physician have a license in Texas?

    The “Licensure Status” will show any non-disciplinary limitation on a physician’s license, such as “LUA - Limited to Underserved Area only”. If this area shows “None”, then the physician has no such limitation.

    This physician’s profile shows “Registration Status: Suspended, Active”. How can a license be suspended and active at the same time?

    The registration status “Suspended, Active” is a suspended status. A license in this status is not an active license to practice medicine in Texas. However, a licensee with this status has maintained their registration requirements while the license is suspended, and should that suspension be lifted, the license can return to an active status without additional registration requirements.

    How can I verify the license of a Surgical Assistant?

    At this time “Look up a License” can give access to any public actions taken against a Surgical Assistant. However, for additional information on the status of a Surgical Assistant license, please look under the “Other Healthcare Professionals” tab on the “Look up a License” page.

    How can I verify a Pain Management Clinic Certificate?

    At this time “Look up a License” can give access to any public actions taken against a Pain Management Clinic (PMC) certificate. However, for additional information on the status of a PMC certificate, please look under the “Other Healthcare Professionals” tab on the “Look up a License” page.
