It looks as if a complaint has been filed against Envita with the Arizona Homeopathic Board related to their treatment of Lyme disease.  No information about the specific nature of the complaint has been published so far.

I am not saying they did or did not do anything wrong as I dont have any information about this, but I do want to say it is not at all unusual for alternative doctors and/or clinics to be targeted for their treatments protocals. The clinic I came to be treated at for environmental toxins is always in court defending themselves for something and they do a great job. So, again, I am not defending Envita but do not be too quick to judge because there are charges againt them, seems it happens way too often.    D

It looks like a patient put in the complaint. This was filed last year. I agree with Dowa that alot of these natural treatment clinics are investigated alot for the way they treat.

Most doctors end up with one or more complaints against them at some point, and just because a complaint is made doesn't mean it's valid.

It's really difficult sometimes to draw the distinction between legitimate alternative medicine and quackery. When large sums of money are involved, one has to do due diligence before opening your wallet.

Appears that more and more doctor's who treat lyme disease are coming under attack, whether it be for alternative treatments, or traditional abx treatments. I think we'll be seeing more and more of these kinds of attacks, warranted or not, against LLMD's. That's too bad because it will cause more LLMD's not want to treat people with lyme disease. That hurts all of us.

Actually, the "doctor" (later it was revealed he didn't have a medical license) who created the Quackwatch website was taken to court over some of the content on his website - something about FDA-approved, proven treatments for things he was claiming were quackery...

So the doctor that posted the website did not have a license?

Just for the record I am getting the best care from Dr. K. at his clinic in Mesa. He was the first doctor to check my blood for hyperquagulation.
No one else ever even thought to do it because i don't have high blood preasure. I could have had a stroke and felt like I was having mini strokes all the time. I find him to be very knowledgeable and he LISTENS. Treating lyme is his life and his family too. No one has the magic bullet for lyme and we are all suffering. He never promised me an easy time or miracle cure. He is very honest and realistic. I feel so lucky to be in his care. I don't have that preasure building up in my head and eye balls and am just now starting to walk without hanging on to the furnature and walls. This is only my third week but I'm not breaking down crying anymore like I was 2 weeks ago.

This is MY experience. I wasn't gonna say anything when this post came up but it not fair to put negative stuff up there if it isn't even our own experience. It just feeds into the charge that didn't even stick anyway.

This disease is tuff and tricky. One day it feels better and the next like a train wreck but nothing is worse than going for help and the doctors are half listening or take chances with our bodies without considering the consequences by throwing treatments at us. I have seen Dr K treat each person different with treatment and always do tests before changing treatments. I like that and I can go into his office any time to see him. I like that he has me right under his nose with more staff than patients. This to me is optimal medical care. We have a long way to go with lyme treatment and new ways of approaching this and Dr K is working all the time to find new discoveries. And I know there are other doctors also working just as hard. Especially if they have lyme too.

There have been multiple lawsuits involving Barrett, who clearly has an axe to grind.  This is the biggest one I'm aware of:
 
As for his license:

I think the quack watch guy makes money everytime anyone clicks on to that site. he is probably making so much money that he can afford to go to be taken to court too. Its a rackett.
