Man with revoked medical license was treating patients

By

An Ocala man, who had his medical license revoked 15 years ago, has been arrested for practicing medicine without a license. Yaser Hasan Loufti, also known as Doctor Lou, had been practicing chelation, which cleanses the blood of heavy metals. Marion County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Judge Cochran says Loufti’s patients were receiving IV treatments, containing a yellowish liquid.

“We’re going to continue investigation to find out exactly what that yellowish liquid is, but the initial thought is that it’s vitamins and water,” he says.

He says Loufti treated at least three people.
