Barry Nevins, 73, owner of Barry’s Vitamins & Herbs in Boca Raton, still faces a felony charge of unlicensed practice of health care profession, following his October 2011 arrest. Prosecutors say Nevins violated a deferred prosecution agreement by referring to himself as a doctor on a website late last year.
If you suffer from heart disease, depression, digestive disorders or other ailments, Barry Nevins sells products advertised to help you “be well.”
But the Boca Raton business owner is not a medical doctor, and he insists he stopped claiming to be one — as required by an agreement with state prosecutors last year to resolve a criminal charge from October 2011.
