Chief Thomas Encourages Appleton ‘Fake Doctor’ Victims to Come Forward

Local News

32-year-old Kyle Larsen could face years in prison after being charged with 18 counts for posing as a doctor and prescribing medications to patients.

On Local 5 This Morning, Appleton Police Chief Todd Thomas said the situation was concerning.

“This was really disturbing,” Thomas said. “We’ve had several people come forward. We understand that there’s probably a lot of other people out there that saw him but they’re probably embarrassed or uncomfortable coming forward. I just want to encourage them to give us a call. We will be very compassionate with how we deal with them.”

Thomas also said that the department will be sending out a survey to the public asking what they would like to see from the force. The results would be considered for part of their strategic plan moving forward.

The APD also received a $25,000 grant Wednesday from the International Association of Clear Thinking to help with the mental health of the officers.
