A former doctor is under arrest in New Jersey accused of continuing to practice medicine and surgery under a different name.

The Bergen County Prosecutor announced the arrest of Alan Lupinacci.

Lupinacci lost his medical license after pleading guilty in 1995 to 10 counts of criminal sexual content with his female patients.

In 2003, despite the suspended license it was found that Lupinacci was still practicing medicine at the Wyckoff Health Shoppe in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

Police again opened another investigation when they say Lupinacci again worked at a nutritional counseling facility, but under the name Dr. Alan Woods.

Lupinacci is accused of offering nutritional counseling services for an initial consultation fee of $375.00 for a three hour meeting with follow up appointments available for $125.00 per hour.

Additionally, after meeting with clients and recommending a nutritional and supplementation regime, the suspect would offer to provide them with various vitamins and supplementation products that he had for sale within the office or through an online website.

Authorities say over the 2 year period, Lupinacci was given over $80,000 for treatment and medicines to patients who believed they were being provided by a licensed and authorized medical physician.

The suspect was arrested at his office without incident and faces multiple criminal counts.

He's being held on $100,000 bail.
