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.
