|Practicing medicine without a license can create a Frankenstein Monster |
Just like you hope your pilot has flown a plane before, it'd be nice to know your surgeon has been to medical school -- at the very least.
District Attorney George Gascón
announced the unsettling news that 49-year-old Carlos Guzmangarza has been arrested on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license.
What's worse, he allegedly conducted invasive surgery on at least two patients, according to the DA.
Guzmangarza, a San Francisco resident, allegedly stole the identify of a physicians assistant and managed to defraud patients who believed he was a real doctor. He saw patients in the Mission District where he performed his surgeries.
Guzmangarza is facing felony charges. No word on how his patients are recovering ... from this news.
