Man who allegedly practiced medicine from home without license charged

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

A man who had been practicing medicine out of his home allegedly without a license was formally charged with six crimes, including assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm.

In October, Alberto Gonzalez, 58, was arrested after officers went to his house on a suspicious circumstances call and found a line of patients, a medical examination table, several used syringes, prescription medications and a stolen handgun.

In addition to the assault charge, the charges filed on Thursday include practicing medicine with a certificate, possession of a controlled substance for sale, receiving known stolen property, advertising as a doctor without a valid certificate and possession of a controlled substance with no prior conviction.

Gonzalez is out of custody on $40,000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 19.
