Timothy Scherz agreed to give up his chiropractor’s license after the Board of Chiropractic Examiners found he failed to keep complete patient records and made false and misleading statements in his advertising, according to an order released last week.
One advertisement said: “Most chiropractors today 'play medical doctor’ in that they are trying to remove symptoms with massage, physical therapy, spinal decompression, etc.”
After receiving several complaints, the board reviewed Scherz’s patient records and found that he failed to follow up on potentially significant or life-threatening conditions. To read the board's order, click here.
Scherz, who practiced in the metro area, told the board that he planned to move out of state and did not intend to renew his chiropractic license. He is listed as a chiropractor for an office in Peru.
