BOERNE, Texas (AP) - A woman accused of using the credentials of a Chicago-based doctor to practice medicine in Kendall County in Texas has been arrested.

The Boerne Police Department says Katinka Hunter, also known as Catharina Hunter, was arrested Thursday and charged with practicing medicine in violation of subtitle and forgery.

Lt. Steve Perez says the Chicago-based physician contacted officers to report someone was using her credentials to write prescriptions. Authorities say officers discovered neither of the names she had used was listed on the Texas Medical Board or the Texas Physician Assistant Board.

Authorities say Hunter worked at the Hope of Life Alternative Treatment Center and was linked to H2L Medical and Aesthetic Center LLC.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Hunter has an attorney who can speak on her behalf.
