Hollywood Acupuncturist Accused Of Practicing Medicine Without A License

Man accused of giving silicone injections in Plantation hotel room

She also had spasms, high blood pressure and heart palpitations conditions that sent her to the emergency room five times, Kogan said. The “doctor” known to patients as Dr. Charlie Ware, according to his website was arrested Tuesday at his office at 3800 S. Ocean Drive in Hollywood, authorities said. Charlie Ware, who authorities say had no medical training or a medical license, was charged with three counts of attempting to practice medicine without a license, records show. He told investigators that he used the same product on at least a dozen patients, according to the police report. Authorities attempted to reach those clients and it’s unclear if any others suffered similar symptoms. During a U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigation, Ware told an agent that he had injected a skin-tightening product called Simildiet into Kogan’s cheeks and forehead, authorities said. The agent found that the product’s manufacturer a pharmaceutical company in Spain states that the product only may be used externally. It also contains ingredients that the state’s health department says could be toxic, according to the police report. Ware, 39, was released from jail Wednesday after posting a $4,500 bond, jail records show. Reached by phone Thursday, he declined to comment. Although Kogan said her condition has improved since her February 2012 treatment, there have been residual effects, such as the sensation of coldness.

‘Slave’ Writer: Hollywood Making GOP Mistake of Not Tracking Blacks

Steve and I had gone back and forth on different ideas about a slavery movie, but nothing was really working until she found the book. It was a really unique artifact in the sense that it was someone who endured it and could write directly about it. And someone who had a very interesting perspective on the duality of it, because he had freedom and then had it taken from him. That immediacy really carries through in the source material. You read that book, and you think, how did this ever fall out of the American canon? Why is this not taught in schools? Why does every kid not know about this, let alone a person like me, who assumes himself to be educated? But theres a pressure in doing justice to material that strong. I knew going in that if I could find a way to really translate that power onto the page, other people were going to hold on to what was there and not try to fit it into a release schedule or a concept of what was going to sell. Steve is that kind of guy. He goes for it and he does not flinch, whether it is a painful moment, a beautiful moment, a very small moment or a large moment. He was very exacting in terms of what he wanted in the story, but I never had to worry about the next writer coming in.
