Sports "doctor" under investigation

Mike Fish of ESPN.com reports that Mack Henry "Hank" Sloan, who runs an Atlanta clinic with a clientele of sports stars, is under investigation for allegedly practicing medicine without a license. "The 36-year-old Sloan calls himself a naturopath, a practitioner of a medical discipline that emphasizes holistic approaches to enhance the body's innate ability to recover. Naturopathy is licensed in only 14 states, but not Georgia." Fish reports that some high-profile patients were not aware that "Dr. Sloan" is not a licensed physician. Sports medicine experts also question Sloan's treatments to speed athletes' recovery.
