Subject:  Local Veterinarian Cited for Unauthorized Practices
 
Yesterday, August 14, 2013, Fran Freemyer, DVM, was cited for unauthorized practices (practicing medicine without a license) by detectives of the Greeley Police Department.  The investigation revealed Dr. Freemyer to have been providing medical services to humans. 
 
The Police Department was contacted in late June by medical staff at North Colorado Medical Center after a patient revealed they had received treatments from Dr. Freemyer.  Ultimately, the patient required surgery to remove three toes due to a lack of proper medical care.  At this time, police believe others may have been treated by Dr. Freemyer and are asking that anyone who may have received treatment or who may have information regarding this investigation to contact Detective Mike Heck at 970-350-9617.
 
As this investigation deals with protected medical information, the identity of the victim in this case will not be made public
