"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."
