A disgraced chiropractor who lost her license after a federal fraud conviction is facing an alleged probation violation and potential prison time after an ABC15 investigation.

Wendy Weisflog has been ordered to appear before a judge in September.

Federal prosecutors did not respond to emails seeking information about Weisflog’s alleged probation violation.

However, a probation official contacted ABC15 with questions about the station’s recent investigative documentary series “Impostors,” which exposed multiple impostor health professionals and how they evade accountability.

The second episode of the Impostor series focuses on Weisflog and can be viewed here.

In a court order to reschedule the date of her probation violation hearing, Judge Susan Bolton issued an order that specifically bars Weisflog from having physical contact with any patients.

“It is further ordered that as a condition of granting Defendant’s request to continue that Defendant is precluded from doing any hands-on services at her business Aspire Body Contouring,” Bolton wrote.

Weisflog and her court-appointed defense attorney declined to comment.

As part of a 2016 plea deal for stealing more than $2.5 million from a health insurance company, Weisflog avoided prison by agreeing to pay restitution and forfeit all licenses as well as never again practice medicine of any regard, records show.

But Weisflog didn’t stop.

After the conviction, she opened a Scottsdale medspa and continued to perform and assist with chiropractic, laser, medical, and cosmetic procedures on unsuspecting patients, according to multiple former co-workers and eight patients interviewed by ABC15.

ABC15 also obtained photos, video, criminal complaints and records alleging repeated illegal activities by Weisflog after her plea deal.

Multiple people filed officials complaints with state and local authorities alleging unlicensed and illegal activity by Weisflog.

But ABC15 discovered those complaints were not thoroughly investigated.

Some were dismissed without any investigation, records show.

ABC15 also uncovered that two health professionals, who briefly worked with Weisflog, accused her of stealing their prescribing information to illegally fill prescriptions.

Both health professionals filed police reports with the Scottsdale Police Department, which recommended charges in both cases. One of which happened after her federal conviction.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office has not prosecuted either case.

Weisflog has a documented history of concerns with prescription drugs and substance abuse, health board records show.

In an 11-month period from 2013 to 2014, Weisflog obtained approximately 3,244 tablets of controlled substances, including Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, Lorazepam, Xanax, and Carisoprodol, records show.

Editor’s note: While reporting on Weisflog in 2018, she filed for an injunction of harassment against ABC15 investigative reporter Dave Biscobing in Scottsdale City Court. The injunction was dismissed by a judge.
