Chiropractor is suspended, fined

Posted by: Jane Friedmann under Businesses in hot water, Whistleblower Updated: October 19, 2011 - 10:57 AM
An Edina chiropractor accused of providing false patient information had his license suspended for two months and must pay a $15,000 fine and take classes, according to an order made public by the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners last month.
Adam J. Burke submitted health care credit card applications electronically on behalf of patients but inflated income figures and falsified home-ownership status in order to help them qualify, the board said.
The board also found that he kept incomplete records and didn’t obtain patient signatures.
After two months, Burke may resume practice under a 22-month stayed suspension as long as he takes classes in ethics and recordkeeping, passes an examination and allows the board to review his records.
