Thirteen former patients of a chiropractor who is the focus of an ongoing CALL7 investigation have filed a lawsuit seeking damages.


The lawsuit accuses Brandon Credeur of deceptive trade practices, professional negligence, misrepresentation (pretending to be an endocrinologist when he's a chiropractor), and breach of contract.


The lawsuit names Credeur, his wife Heather Credeur, and every chiropractor in his office. It also names Credeur's practice, Functional Endocrinology Center of Colorado, and every incarnation of his business name over the last five years.

This is the second lawsuit filed against Credeur. The first lawsuit was filed by a woman who died before the lawsuit was settled.


The patients are seeking damages in excess of $15,000.


Over the past year, many of Credeur's former patients told 7NEWS they paid thousands of dollars upfront, seeking help for thyroid and diabetes problems from someone they thought was an endocrinologist.


The state has hit Credeur with 25 counts including negligent chiropractic practice, false or misleading advertising, unethical advertising, ordering unnecessary tests, failing to make essential entries on patient records, or falsifying them, abandoning a patient, and performing a procedure beyond the scope of authorized services.
