In a closed door meeting, the licensing panel of the Colorado Medical Board found "evidence chiropractor Brandon Credeur performed the "unlicensed practice of medicine and referred the case to the Attorney General for legal review.The Call7 Investigators first exposed Credeurs questionable business practices in April. Earlier this month, Call7 showed videos of Credeur telling other medical providers to "hide the spines" in the office, and instructing them on how to "close" patients, also considered "deal flows."On Wednesday, the state Medical Board took action.Call7 Investigator Theresa Marchetta was at the licensing panels meeting where Credeur was on the agenda under the heading, "Allegations Of Unlicensed Practice of Medicine.The panel handles medical licensing issues for the board.During a closed-door executive session, the licensing panel found "evidence Credeur was performing the unlicensed practice of medicine," according to Department of Regulatory Agencys spokesperson, Chris Lines.The licensing panel then elected to send Credeur's case to the Colorado Attorney General's office for legal review, because according to Lines, the panel feels consumers are being put at risk.Since Credeur is licensed as a chiropractor and not a physician, any action taken against his license would come from the Chiropractic Board. They meet again in early September.The Call7 Investigators have confirmed the Attorney Generals Office is investigating Credeur for possible criminal charges.In the meantime, Credeur can continue to solicit and treat new patients.The Call7 Investigators have received more than 100 calls and emails about Credeur from patients who said they were misled about his qualifications to treat diabetes and thyroid disorders.Despite these most recent developments, Brandon and Heather Credeur were holding another free dinner Wednesday at the Hilton Garden Inn in the Tech Center to recruit new diabetes patients.The Attorney General's office will not comment on an open investigation.Credeur spokeswoman released a statement saying,"Dr. Credeur has, and will, continue to cooperate in all regulatory inquiries. In every instance, he has been forthright, honest and practicing with the laws that govern chiropractic practice."
