Summary An 18-month investigation by WITI-TV captured hidden-camera documentation of Dr. Stuart Suster committing blatant emotional and psychological abuse to his patients. As the investigation continued, more and more evidence pointed to shady business practices and questionable medical techniques practiced by Dr. Suster. After the show aired, the state of Wisconsin charged Dr. Suster with 11 counts of inappropriate conduct towards patients, and he remained the focus of local, state and federal investigations prompted by the WITI investigation.
