A Downers Grove man has been charged with practicing medicine without a license following a months-long investigation by Downers Grove police.

Eugene Miller, 75, of 5125 Blodgett Ave., is being held in DuPage County Jail on a $250,000 bond, said Sgt. Dave Bormann of the Downers Grove police. Miller was convicted in DuPage County Circuit Court of the same charge in 2005.

Miller allegedly has treated people out of his apartment, Bormann said. "He claims to be a retired chiropractor, but he has never been to medical school and has never been a doctor."

Miller used "atypical treatment methods," such as vibration, Bormann said. "He claims to be able to cure many different ailments."

"We are looking for more people who Mr. Miller has claimed to have treated," Bormann said. People who paid Miller for treatment are asked to contact the Downers Grove Police Department's investigative division at 630-434-5600.
