As a service for the Citizens of Texas, this link is the "Texas OnLine Occupational Profiling System" (TOPS;
TexasOnline.com; SB187-Passed 77th Legislature) which provides
additional licensee and office/practice information as self-reported
by the Podiatric Physician. Information could include handicap
accessibility, number of years in practice, languages
spoken, types of insurance accepted, addresses,
education/training, hospital affiliations, certifications and
other services offered. You may also search a "City" or "Zip
Code" to locate Podiatric Physicians practicing in your area.
Senate Bill 187, passed by the 77th Legislature, required
certain licensing agencies to collect information from their
licensees and make this information available to the public
through TexasOnline. The purpose is to provide the public with
access to information about licensed professionals to allow them
the ability to make better-informed decisions regarding their
selection of service providers. For this, TexasOnline has
developed the Professional Profiling System capable of
gathering, storing and displaying professional profile
information online. Please note: Much of the data in this system
is self-reported by the license holders. Therefore, neither the
State of Texas nor the licensing agencies accept any legal
liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness,
timeliness, or usefulness of this information. Should you have
any concern as to the accuracy of the data in this system,
please contact the license holder or facility for clarification.
