C alleges that R misdiagnosed a medical condition and convinced a patient that they no longer had cancer. C also alleges R is using an illegal machine identified as a bio resonance machine. Unit is identified as a questionable diagnostic devise and is banned for import by the FDA&FTC. INV revealed that C is unwilling to provide the identity of the patient. Without corroborating evidence from the patient, the investigation can not proceed.
IBOL recommends the Board authorize closure.
C alleges R is misleading the public in advertising. R uses that same advertising
"For a free report that reveals information every car accident victim should have before they speak to anyone. Research shows that even a fender bender can cause pain, headaches, even arthritis. Many car accident victims worry more
about their car then they do their rights. If you have been involved in an auto accident listen to the 24 hour toll-free recorded message by calling 1-888-###-####. This call is free and so is the report." R is identified in the ad. From previous Board recommendations, as long as the name of the Chiropractor appears in the body of the advertisement, the Board has determined there is not an advertising violation.
IBOL requests Board direction as to the content of the ad and any further action.
C alleged R has maligned and made libelous statements against C. A review of the complaint and documents reveals no information that would constitute a possible violation of the CHI laws or rules.
07-20-04 - IBOL recommends the Board authorize closure with letters recommending possible civil action.
