Florida: Alejandra Tobon arrested for unlicensed practice of medicine in Pembroke Pines

A Pembroke Pines woman was arrested this week for performing medical procedures without a medical license, according to a Florida Department of Health news release Thursday.

A  joint investigation by  The Florida Department of Health’s Ft. Lauderdale Unlicensed Activity (ULA) Unit, the Pembroke Pines Police Department, Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO), and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) led to the arrest of Alejandra Tobon.

According to health officials, the joint operation of the agencies listed above executed a warrant at 1200 NW 154th Avenue in Pembroke Pines. Upon entering the home, the team found Tobon in the act of performing plasma transfer, a cosmetic procedure. They also discovered two elaborate exam rooms, containing a total of four examination tables, drugs, and medical equipment used for different cosmetic procedures, such as skin rejuvenation, Botox, filler, vitamin injections, plasma therapy, and carboxy therapy.

“Unlicensed practice of a health care profession reflects a complete disregard for the well-being and safety of Florida’s families,” said Dr. John Armstrong, State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health. “This arrest demonstrates the Department’s commitment to partner with other enforcement agencies to protect the health of all Floridians.”

The unlicensed practice of medicine is a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to one year in jail.
