Last Updated: 108 days ago
GREELEY, Colo. - Four more people have told police that a Greeley veterinarian who’s accused of treating a person with an experimental cream meant to fight cancer in dogs also treated them, according to our partners at the Greeley Tribune.
Fran Freemyer, 78, was cited for practicing medicine on humans without a license last month after a patient had two toes amputated at North Colorado Medical Center. Doctors at the hospital said the patient required surgery due to the lack of proper medical care.
Freemyer told 7NEWS he didn't treat humans, but in a police report obtained by 7NEWS, Freemyer admitted to treating a man with sore toes.
The patient told detectives he was referred to the veterinarian and Freemyer was "very energetic about his confidence in his ability to fix the foot."
Greeley police spokeswoman Sgt. Susan West told the Tribune that four more people have come forward to tell police that Freemyer also treated them. She said she couldn’t discuss the details of those allegations because the investigation is ongoing.
