patients looking for the fountain of youth may not have received it here...inside the office of doctor mark van wormer.

The u-s attorney's office claims wormer administered a generic form of botox...one that's not federally approved.

A decision officials say stole thousands from patients but worse, put their health in danger.

((17:44:12 - :24))

lawyer - he administers botox to this day, his offices are still open...patients are doing quite well.

Medboard - it's always a concern..protect the public.

Out of 13 charges brought against him, wormer pleaded guilty to one count of misbranding a drug and aiding and abetting.

Regardless of his plea, the doors to wormer's offices remain open and he is free to practice.

The new mexico state board of medical examiners is now digging into this case to decide whether or not to pull his license...a process that could take months or even years.
