ODESSA- FBI agents searched a doctor's office on Wednesday. Cardiologist Dr. Suresh Gadasalli runs The Healthy Heart Center in Odessa.

The FBI confirmed to NewsWest 9 their agents served a routine search warrant as part of an ongoing investigation. They would not elaborate on the details of the investigation.

Agents spent around seven hours digging through paperwork inside the center. They will not confirm if any documents were seized.

Dr. Gadasalli has been working in Odessa as a heart doctor since 1994.

Back in 2009, the Texas Medical Board served Dr. Gadasalli with a violation for a couple of unprofessional practices, the first being interpersonal communication difficulties with hospital staff and the second being inadequate maintenance of a patient's medical record.

It's not yet clear if that state violation has anything to do with Wednesday's FBI search.

The doctor's staff declined to comment on the situation.
