Police Arrest Unlicensed Wyckoff "Doctor"

County Prosecutor says Alan Lupinacci ignored a court order to stop practicing medicine.

Police arrested 65-year-old Alan Lupinacci Tuesday on charges that he was practicing medicine without a license out of his Wyckoff office, according to Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli.

According to Molinelli, Lupinacci lost his medical license in 1995 after he pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual contact with female patients. In 2003, Lupinacci then began practicing out of the Wyckoff Health Shoppe on Wyckoff Avenue. A court order prohibited Lupinacci from practicing medicine or using a title that indicated he had a medical license.

Police allege that Lupinacci had continued practicing since 2010 out of on Cedar Hill Avenue, where he identified himself as Dr. Alan Woods. Lupinacci allegedly made more than $80,000 from clients who believed he was a doctor.

Molinelli also said that Lupinacci was holding a weekly call-in radio show on WMCA New York 570 AM as "Dr. Al," in which he would answer medical questions from listeners.

Police arrested Lupinacci at his office Tuesday and charged him financial facilitation of criminal activity, theft by deception, misconduct by a corporate official, impersonation and practice of medicine and surgery or podiatry by unlicensed person.

This seems like it happens too often. Wasn't there another "Dr" doing this a few years ago?

He is a genius and is being unfairly targeted. In fact, he's one of the few physicians who speaks out against the harms of mammography. He has done much more good for the community than harm, and he should be found not guilty. He was not practicing medicine, he was simply giving his informed opinion.

He needs a good attorney.

Ditto ... He is a good, intelligent & extremely knowledgeable man being unfairly persecuted because of his knowledge & determination to protect the health & well being of others. We have been brainwashed by the greed of 'Big Pharma, Monsanto, Medical' profession (s), etc. We should appreciate his efforts & support him at every level for what he is doing to protect us the unsuspecting public.

Dr. Alan Luppinaci is a kind and gentle man, dedicated to helping others improve their health, rather than placating symptoms with toxic drugs---the standard procedure. Years ago he was framed because he testified honestly against the wrongful death of one of his patients in a prison, upsetting the staus quo of several questionable politicians. Their retribution was his destruction by defamation. LESSON: Be sure you know both sides of every story.

Reading the comments it is heartbreaking to see how blind people can be to the real person this doctor is. Dr Luppinaci should be a kind , gentle,knowledgeable, genius doctor. The fact is he hurt many Innocent,trusting people by not keeping his hands to himself.They went there to get better,not sexually abuse. The courts have proven that Dr has been sexually abusing his patients for years. The abuse has be tracked from when he was an intern to current date. It is only a matter of time before he picks is next victims which just might be someones' daughter,wife mother or granddaughter. The only medicine he should be practicing is on male inmates. ..LESSON HERE.......Doctor is a predator...

I was a patient of his when he first started practicing medicine. Many times he met me at midnight to help me with my medical problems. He was a great Dr.

He is a great doctor who deserves a second chance. He helped hundreds of people with their heatlh issues and showed them how to maintain a healthy lifestlye and enjoy optimal health - something pharmaceutical companies know nothing about. A rather noble man indeed and none can judge him.

I stil miss hearing him and Cheryl on Saturdays on WMCA. He has left a vacuum that has not been filled. Such intelligence and knowledge is not easy to come by. What a loss. Wish we could gain access to his experience and knowledge again. Why should his voice be muzzled like this?

He has more knowledge than any 5 MDs. One of the best for sure. This is what our society does to people who dare to oppose big money and the pharmaceutical companies.
