It sounds like he needs to see a shrink too.

More than two years after the Texas Medical Board reprimanded a San Antonio psychiatrist for having sex with a woman he was treating, the agency has revoked the doctor's license for overstepping boundaries with another patient.

Alan T. Lloyd, 51, who most recently worked at the Laurel Ridge Treatment Center, lost his license last month after the board concluded he had opened a joint checking account with the patient.

The board also found Lloyd had prescribed opiates and other dangerous drugs to the patient, who had a history of drug abuse.
