Phony doc accused of treating patients without license

A California man posing as a doctor allegedly treated thousands of patients, including some who had cancer. Stephan Gevorkian, 44, of Studio City, faces five felony counts of practicing medicine without certification.

The following is an excerpt from NBC News.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said the following in a statement:

“Practicing medicine without a license is not only a criminal activity in California, it can cause irreparable harm to the health of unsuspecting people, some with serious illnesses, who believe they are under the care of a licensed physician,” Gascón said.

Gevorkian owns and operates Pathways Medical in the North Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, prosecutors said. The business performs blood tests, advises patients about treatments and offers treatments for cancer, viral infections and other conditions, prosecutors said.

On Nov. 17, an undercover investigator received consultation from Gevorkian. During the consultation, Gevorkian failed to recognize abnormal levels of a hormone that could indicate a serious medical condition, prosecutors alleged. 

Gevorkian’s office could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.

His attorney also could not be reached.

  1. Sharyl this Articleis almost as Bad as a Doctor Tinkering with a Virus that gets out of Hand and slips out of Lab ” Manufactured Consent slip and Fails ” From the inner Mind to the outer limits ???

  2. This article Facts ? PHD practicing ??? In the early 1800″s nobody really had a PHD, seems it was first thought of in England around 1850’s until Schools first came about.? There are many people in History that in different area’s of life that made some of the greatest discoveries in medicine and science including myself .Tinor of years of practice = [ Breaking Good ] During the Time of the Civil War even Medicine practice was pretty Crude and lots of people died because of infections and poorer practice knowledge of the unkown …

  3. MD degree is no longer needed in many states… PAs , Nursing Assistants practice medicine … less expensive to the healthcare industry… not so good for the patient. American med schools use to require too students from undergrad schools… “used” is the operative word here .

  4. Need more facts. Did he misrepresent his credentials? Did he offer alternative care? Did his patients want alternative care? Had they rejected medical establishment? Were patients harmed? Helped?


    May be he healed more patients than a regular certified doctor. I just happen to almost get poisoned by one that is certified. And lots of natural healers do much better jobs than all the bigharma conditioned paid lackeys.

  6. I would be more interested to know if he actually helped his patients. A couple decades ago I went to a few doctors that couldn’t diagnose my problem and yet still prescribed a bunch of medicine “to try” that didn’t help in the slightest.
