Brooksville Man Practiced Medicine without a License, Deputies Say
He prescribed herbs, marijuana and other things to kill cancer when consulting with an undercover investigator who was posing as a patient, Hernando deputies said.
BROOKSVILLE – A Brooksville man was arrested Thursday (March 28) and charged with unlawfully practicing medicine after he prescribed herbs, marijuana and other things to cure an undercover investigator’s cancer, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said.
Michael Robert Fagan, 62, of Brooksville, was charged with one count of Unlicensed Practice of a Healthcare Profession.
Sheriff’s detectives said they, along with investigators from the Department of Health went to a home on Grizzly Bear Lane (Camp A Wyle) in Brooksville to investigate allegations that Fagan was practicing medicine out of the home without a license. Undercover investigators had arranged a “consultation” type appointment with Fagan that morning.
During the consultation, Fagan advised the patient (the undercover investigator) that he/she would need to take herbs and do various other things to kill the cancer and eliminate the toxins in his/her body. Fagan said he would also add “nutrition” in order to get the body to heal itself.
Fagan told the patient that the herbs would fight the cancer as a natural “chemo,” and he would provide a high level of selenium that would double the patient’s life expectancy and create an additional 23 antibodies.
Deputies said Fagan told the patient this treatment would “not make him/her feel horrible” and that the high frequency generator machine “emanates a frequency to where microbes live.” It targets cancer and destroys it, “poof.”
Fagan recommended the patient use medical cannabis once per week, but three to four days per week would be better. He also told the patient that he would order blood testing for longevity and cancer profiles and read the results. Once he had the results, he would formulate a plan.
Deputies said Fagan admitted seeing clients and selling supplements. He told detectives that the high frequency machine was not his, that it belonged to a neighbor. After that, Fagan decided not to speak with deputies any longer.
During a search of Fagan’s home, deputies said, they collected business records, a computer, cell phones, a pill encapsulator, a blue 20 MHz sweep function generator, a digital scale and several other items.
