PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A grand jury indicted a South Jersey man who’s charged for practicing medicine for years without having a license.
Kevin Lickfield of Marlton was once able to treat patients in New Jersey until he lost that right. He pleaded guilty for being part of a scheme to sell Oxycontin and Percocet in 2001.
But more recently, two years ago, he was arrested.
“Began practicing again for several months,” says Jason Laughlin with the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office. “Even though he had been trained as a doctor he had his license suspended and he was not allowed to legally practice medicine in the state.”
But at his practice, Lickfield Medical Associates in Pennsauken, he would allegedly treat patients as a family doctor.
“A former employee at his practice reported him and he was arrested. He was indicted last week.”
He faces multiple counts of practicing medicine without a license and a count of second degree health claims fraud.
