San Angelo- Tom Green Health Department Unable to See Patients after Doctor's De

San Angelo, Tx - The San Angelo-Tom Green County Health Department is unable to see patients because of the untimely death Monday of Dr. Stephen Seifert, the department’s local health authority. Dr. Seifert served as the department’s medical director for more than 15 years. Without his standing delegation orders, which are required by law, the department’s nurses lack the authority to administer shots, test and treat for sexually transmitted diseases, and administer other communicable disease control measures. The Health Department is working on the appointment of a new local health authority. The department will alert the public when it can begin scheduling and seeing patients again.
