MONTREAL – Quebec's college of physicians says it's on the hunt for a fake doctor who claims to be the only one in Montreal who can do a prostate exam while a patient's pants are still on.
The college has charged Ken Montizambert, an osteopath and naturopath, with 12 charges of practising without a license and using a false title.
In a court motion this week, the college accused Montizambert of ordering blood tests and prescribing medication at the Tri-Med clinic in Montreal's west end.
The college also says the man has made false claims related to prostate cancer treatments.
It discovered the alleged scam following a complaint by Quebec's order of dentists.
The college says that during an undercover visit by investigator Jean Martin, the naturopath claimed to be a "specialist in neurology, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and memory."
Montizambert then charged the investigator $180 for a series of tests.
