SHERMAN, TX -- Federal agents executed a search warrant during a raid of a doctor's office in Sherman on Friday afternoon.

A spokeswoman for the Dallas office of the Drug Enforcement Agency said the warrants were executed at the Sherman and Paris, Texas offices of Dr. Howard Gregg Diamond.

The DEA their agents and FBI personnel were looking for both patient and drug records. The Tactical Diversion Group said no one was arrested; only documents were taken.

Dr. Diamond's Website says he is a board certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, and is founder of the DiamondBack Pain & Wellness Center. 

In a Facebook post to patients last month, Dr. Diamond said most local pharmacies had stopped filling prescriptions he had written.

"This is an unexplained circumstance that is out of my control, and inconsistent with the medical welfare of my patients," he wrote.

Reaching out to KTEN on Facebook, Joseph Duval  defended his physician.

"I suffer from a very real chronic pain, and I am just one of his patients," Duval wrote. "This is an attack on [a] good man, [a] good doctor who only cares about his patients."

Texas Medical Board records show that Dr. Diamond has no history of malpractice, but was subject to a "remedial plan" in 2015 after "failing to maintain adequate medical records documenting his care and treatment of chronic pain patients." 

Dr. Diamond successfully competed the remedial plan by fall of 2016.

Dr. Diamond has been registered to practice medicine in Texas since 1988 after graduating from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and with an internship at Tulane University in New Orleans.
