ROCKWALL, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas pediatrician has been suspended from his practice for bizarre and dangerous acts detailed in documents from the Texas Medical Board.

After more than 20 years licensed in Texas, the board suspended Dr. Kurt Pflieger, after he showed up to work last week crying and wearing pajamas.  The breakdown ended months of illegal behavior according to the documents.

The report from the Texas Medical Board said it started back in January with statements from co-workers at two locations where he practices.

In January, Dr. Pflieger was roughhousing with a 2-year-old according to the report.  He tried to throw him on his shoulder and missed, dropping the child to the ground, on his head.

Dr. Pflieger started acting very bizarre according to documents, praying aloud, yelling the word “Satan” during visits with patients, wearing the same sweatpants and shirt to work three days in a row.

He started bringing a dog into the office and rolling around with it in the hallways as patients and families walked through.  The report also says he started showing up late, missing appointments and arriving with slurred speech.

In a matter of weeks, he told a co-worker on one occasion he was late because he was having sex with his fiancee, slapped another co-worker on the rear, kissed another on the face, then called a staff meeting to announce he was now single.

At one point, the report states, he handed out prescription pads to the office staff to write them if they needed to, which is illegal.

“I’m glad that he’s getting a mandatory break, for sure,” said one mother, Leslie Cook, as she left the office Tuesday. “And being the mother of a baby that I love so much… I would want him to see a doctor that’s well rested, happy and clear-headed.”

The suspension is considered temporary.

Here is the temporary suspension order:

    1. And certainly deserving of compassion and help, right?

  1. This guy sounds like a riot! What’s the problem?

  2. One question…WHAT TOOK SO LONG???

  3. John Smith says:

    Obviously he is possessed by a demon.

  4. Maybe their is a nurse nicknamed “hot lips” who decided to marry someone else?

  5. tngilmer says:

    The suspension is only temporary? Wow.

  6. He is one who needs his guns taken from him; does he have any?

    1. John Akridge says:

      Well most of us don’t know. But too bad we don’t have some kind of massive database that has all information about every citizen and whether or not they own firearms that way if somebody thinks somebody else is mentally unfit they could just go to the database and see if they own guns and then send some kind of federal entity to go and take them away. Then again, on second thought,
      MAYBE THATS A BAD IDEA!

  7. Zak Watson says:

    Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  8. Lots of compassion on this board…..maybe this doctor is having a reaction to medication….a nervous breakdown…..the suspension is warranted fr sure…but come on…….he practiced for what…20 years….obviously he had been a decent pediatrician. People have breakdowns……brain tumors happen…..there are kinds of seizures that LOOK like mental illness…AL kinds of things….or….he was a closet alcoholic and he hit the bottom because his wife left him and took the kids plus wants a million bucks…….bottom line is……we don’t know and it seems society sure likes to rush in with a lot of judgement…..it’s no wonder history has a lot of nursings, hangings and beheadings with LOTS of public spectacle involved…….for shame!

    1. sorry for my misspellings and lack of proofreading……but ya get the gist….

  9. I hope this guy gets the medical help he obviously needs… his bizarre behavior is obviously VERY out of character. He could have an undiagnosed brain tumor or some other kind of physical or mental illness.
