Arizona state officials are seeking victims who were “treated” by a fake doctor accused of committing dozens of felonies.
Jose Andres Lopez, 40, was arrested by Lake Havasu City police on December 16 and indicted before a grand jury. The Arizona Attorney General’s Office announced his charges on Wednesday.
State officials are now looking for clients who were “treated” by Lopez at the Institute for Male Health and Performance in Lake Havasu City. Officials believe he may have “practiced” under the name Dr. Joseph Lopez.
Lopez’s charges include computer tampering, taking the identity of another and forgery. Officials say that the offenses took place between 2017 and 2021.

Lopez is also suspected of lying on his Arizona Western College job application back in July 2018.
