TULSA - Patients of a Tulsa doctor forced to close his practice and seek treatment can now arrange to retrieve their medical records.
Dr. Douglas Brown closed his office and disappeared weeks ago, leaving patients wondering what happened to their medical records.
The 2NEWS investigators learned the doctor was ordered to shut down by the state medical board, but his patients were not notified.

Brown told 2NEWS his patients' records were locked up in his former midtown Tulsa office, and the state medical board is offering to help get patients in touch with their former doctor.
Patients can call the medical board at (405) 962-1400. Board officials say Brown should have a way for patients to pick up their records by Wednesday.
