Unqualified Doctor Arrested in Torrevieja
Officers from the Regional Police have arrested a man in Torrevieja who has been practising medicine despite not being registered with any Spanish school or recognised accreditation.
The arrest was made last week but made public on Tuesday after complaints were filed with the police over “dissatisfaction” with the care in his clinic, from which the investigation concluded he had no formal qualification to practice in Spain.
The doctor had his clinic in an urbanisation in Torrevieja which is popular with British residents. During an inspection, the officers found various materials for the examination and analysis of medical conditions but no formal approval to carry out procedures issued by Valencia.
Therefore, the police arrested the man for illegal economic activities.
