Senate Bill 202 transferred four occupational regulatory programs from the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to the Texas Medical Board (TMB). Medical Physicists, Medical Radiologic Technologists, Perfusionists, and Respiratory Care Practitioners will now be regulated by the TMB and each occupation’s respective board/advisory committee.
To view information on these license holders please visit DSHS Transferred Licenses.

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.
