Fake gynecologist gets four years in prison
"Texan pleads guilty to practicing medicine without a license

DALLAS - A man who posed as a gynecologist after setting up an office in a self-storage complex was sentenced to four years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to practicing medicine without a license.

The charges stemmed from an undercover investigation that began after authorities saw an ad in a weekly newspaper offering free medical care. A prosecutor set up the undercover sting with an investigator posing as a patient and using a hidden camera.

Thomas P. Remo, 50, of Ovilla, wore a scrub shirt and had some medical equipment in the makeshift exam room, a small kitchen in the storage facility office where he worked, authorities said.

After Remos arrest in September, authorities received calls from women who said they were victims, but did not want their identities revealed in court records, and prosecutors did not file sexual assault charges."

1. Didn't Bush try to warn us about this sort of thing?
But did we listen to him? No, some of us did not.

3. Is that the guy who gave out the "special couples exam"?
Off topic, but a little bit on...Did you watch CSI:Las Vegas last week? It was about a non licensed doctor doing sex changes in a storage facility. Of course,things went wildly wrong. I couldn't help but wonder if they got part of the idea from this guy. :hi:

I'm amazed that someone would visit an OBGYN located in a self storage facility.

& what led you to believe they were an imposter & not in fact a OBGYN
Ms Smith. :think:

10. Mm, yes, trustworthy.
I'm sure that if I showed up for my gyno appointment and found myself at a self-storage facility with that guy, I'd just drop trou and get on with it...
