A chiropractor who misdiagnosed a patient and treated her “excessively” has been suspended.
Robert Clad, of the Chiropractic Centre in George Street, Croydon, was also accused of encouraging the patient to disregard advice from another health professional and to cease taking her medication.
Mr Clad was alleged to have influenced the patient to encourage other patients to stay under his care and continue with chiropractic treatment.

This is a hazard – when a non-medical professional thinks they know more than a physician and can convince the patient of it. Of course disputes can happen between doctors but the problem that stuck out here is the “alarmist” way he presented results to the patient and appears to encourage her that chiropractic will solve her issues. If true, that is potentially health-threatening and unethical.
He is suspended for 2 months.
