Update ~ The “Doctor” Of Toothpick Acupuncture Arrested

Update ~ The "Doctor" Of Toothpick Acupuncture Arrested

On May 23rd, I posted a story about a “doctor” who used toothpicks (yes, regular old toothpicks) as an acupuncture treatment. Apparently he posted ads in Bulgarian language newspapers in Illinois to attract patients. The patient, who was treated with toothpicks, eventually suspected that something was not right, and called the police. I am pleased to let you know that the Niles police arrested the man, 61-year-old George Fleming of Skokie, who posed as a doctor. He admitted that he had indeed been the man and now faces up to three years in prison and A $25,000 fine. It was not revealed how he got into the closed clinic and whether other people were also duped.
