ORIGINAL STORY: The Texas Medical Board has temporarily restricted the medical license of Dr.Robert Van Boven, according to a press release.

Van Boven is a neurologist at the Brain & Body Health Institute in Lakeway. He has a previous record, according to Lakeway police including domestic disputes in 2008 and 2013, two cases of criminal trespassing in 2015, plus eight traffic citations and 16 traffic warnings.

The board found Van Boven engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior and comments towards two female patients previously. The incidents took place in April and May last year.

The TMB says the restrictions  they placed on Van Boven prohibits him from seeing, examining, treating, prescribing or otherwise practicing medicine on female patients.

TMB officials say both patients’ statements are credible and found substantial similarity between Van Boven’s conduct with these two women

The temporary restriction remains in place until the board decides on what further action to take.

KVUE reached to Van Boven at his office Wednesday and our calls were not returned.
