TAMARAC (CBSMiami/AP) – A patient says his penis was deformed by a former surgeon who did not have a license to operate.
Mark D. Schreiber, 60, of Tamarac was arrested Friday on a charge of unlicensed practice of health care, causing serious injury, multiple media outlets report.
Hialeah police say the unidentified patient paid Schreiber in February to remove a material that had been injected into his organ to make it longer and thicker.
Authorities say the woman man who performed the initial procedures, 48-year-old Nery C. Gonzalez, is wanted on the same charge.
The patient says his penis is now severely deformed and is unable to function sexually.
Schreiber was given a two-year sentence in 2008 on similar charges of unlicensed practicing. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
