MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL – The Miami-Dade Police Department, Medical Crimes Unit is investigating a man they say was practicing medicine without a license. According to investigators, a tip was received from the Florida Department of Health that a man, Damian Beltran Garces, was practicing medicine without a license.

The Medical Crimes Unit conducted an investigation utilizing undercover officers who arranged a consult for a Botox treatment at Face And Body Esthetics located at 5803 NW 151 Street, #202, in Miami Lakes. There detectives say Garces evaluated the undercover officer and determined a course of treatment, and a price was agreed.
