Carlos Guzmangarza, Fake Doctor, Now Facing Sex Charges

We're assuming he'd like a real lawyer to represent him

Last week, we told readers about the disturbing case of Carlos Guzmangarza, the unqualified “doctor” who duped patients into allowing him to perform medical surgeries on them, including liposuction, despite the fact he had never been to medical school. Turns out, he had more than a few patients.

Police arrested Guzmangarza again this week after another woman came to police, explaining that Guzmangarza had told her he was a doctor and treated her for a skin condition. She only learned that he wasn't really a doctor when she saw his photo on the news, according to police.

The woman said she had met Guzmangarza at a Mission District store back in July where the two struck up a conversation. Somehow they got onto the subject of her skin condition and he told her he was a doctor who could treat her successfully. What a coincidence.
