Crosby Clinic raided by DEA

Raid on Dr. McClellan’s office by law officers

CROSBY – Businesses in the Millenium Center on FM2100 in Crosby were shocked on Tuesday morning about 10 a.m. to see about a dozen cars with federal DEA agents and state police descend on the medical offices of Dr. David M. McClellan. Witnesses said they were there for over an hour, and left with a large quantity of the doctor’s records and other items. Some of the agents arrived in a U-Haul truck, which was used to haul away the confiscated items.

However, the doctor was quoted as saying he would still be open for patients, and in fact left on schedule to work in his clinic in Liberty County.

Later in the day it was reported by media that the DEA, or Drug Enforcement Agency, had moved on about 12 “pain clinics” in the Greater Houston area, as part of an ongoing investigation into illegal drug dispensing activites. Most of these so-called “pill mills” were in the southwest section of the city, near Bissonnet Street, it was reported. There was no official mention of the raid in Crosby, nor did anyone in authority confirm the raid or the reasons for it. No accusations or charges have been filed toward Dr. McClellan in regards to this action.

McClellan’s office has a sign in the window stating “Family Practice, Pain Management, Weight Loss.”

McClellan has had legal problems before, having his license temporarily suspended by the Texas Medical Board in 2007 for inappropriate contact with female patients.
