Public Citizen sent a letter to the Florida Board of Medicine requesting an investigation into the medical practice of Dr. Carlos Garcia, M.D., the Director of Medicine at Utopia Wellness. We specifically requested that the board investigate (1) Dr. Garcia’s role in Utopia Wellness’s dissemination of false and misleading advertisements that promote the use of compounded intravenous (IV) cesium chloride as a treatment for cancer and (2) whether Dr. Garcia and his staff have continued to treat cancer patients with compounded IV cesium chloride since late July 2018, when the Food and Drug Administration took action that prohibited pharmacy compounding using bulk cesium chloride.
