Mar. 21, 2017
PHOENIX (AP) — A man accused of impersonating a doctor and using injections and a laser to treat at least a dozen people for wrinkles and other conditions at Tempe and Scottsdale clinics faces numerous criminal charges.
The Arizona Attorney General's Office announced Tuesday that charges against Craig Allen Scherf include 12 counts each of unlawful practice of medicine and endangerment.
A March 14 indictment also charges Scherf with fraud, theft, illegally conducting an enterprise and taking the identity of another.
The Attorney General's Office says Scherf is not licensed by the Arizona Medical Board or by any other agency regulating the practice of medicine in Arizona.
Payson police located and arrested Scherf on Sunday.
It could not be immediately determined Tuesday whether Scherf has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
