We have seen RHOC star Shannon Beador’s trainer Dr. Tim Ramirez quite a bit this season, as Shannon has been working with him to lose weight.
Dr. Tim was reported for violating state law by performing acupuncture without a license and a secret investigation was opened into the claim against him.
The complaint was filed by someone who is choosing to be anonymous after photographs showing him performing acupuncture were shared on social media.
The California Acupuncture Board opened an investigation against Dr. Tim all the way back in November 2016, RadarOnline reports.
“The Acupuncture Board is in receipt of your complaint referencing the above individual,” the email stated, with a case number and the following information noted: “Tim Ramirez, DC. Unlicensed Practice of Acupuncture.”
“We assure you that every complaint we receive is closely examined. However, please be advised the Board only has jurisdiction to take administrative action against those individuals found to be in violation of the laws and regulations relating to the practice of acupuncture. Further, the Board does not have any authority to demand a refund for the dissatisfied services.”
Shannon posted a photo onto Instagram last year showing her daughter Stella getting acupuncture from Dr. Tim.
The second claim against Dr. Tim was filed December 6, 2016 to the Chiropractic Board of California.
“This acknowledges receipt of your complaint against Tim Ramirez, D.C. with the Board of Chiropractic Examiners,” the letter said.
“The Board assigned your complaint to enforcement staff for review. The Board gives priority attention to complaints containing allegations involving sexual misconduct, fraud, use of drugs or alcohol, or gross negligence/incompetence,” the letter explained.
“Expect notification from the Board regarding the outcome of your complaint. The Board observes all due process requirements mandated by the law. If your complaint is referred for investigation, an investigator may contact you. If the investigation substantiates your allegations, the Board may refer your case to the Attorney General’s Office for formal disciplinary action. If the case proceeds to administrative hearing, you may be called upon to testify before an administrative law judge.”
