NEWS: IHRB ads officially unlawful. Sam Cohen received a Criminal Conviction for lying to a Tribunal. HCCC served IHRB with a Permanent Prohibition Order.
After an in-depth investigation and a police raid on IHRB, the Health Care Complaints Commission concluded that Sam Cohen operated unethically and in a way that ‘Endangered the health and safety of his clients’. Officials placed new Sanctions

The Commissioner of the HCCC said, ‘Mr Cohen has breached the code of conduct for unregistered health practitioners in that he has failed to provide health services in a safe and ethical manner and his provision of health services is a risk to public health and safety.’ This was from a 22-page report handed down […]
A funny thing happened just before NSW Police raided the offices of IHRB. I had been liaising with the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) and a range of other Authorities including the TGA and the probing reporter Mr David Richardson of Channel Seven’s ‘Today Tonight’. After several letters, calls, and forms being filled in, I […]
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, I now have a copy of the 18-page letter that Mr Sam Cohen submitted to the Complaints Resolution Panel in response to the observations I made about IHRB’s advertising. This article reviews the answers that Mr Cohen had sent to the Panel via his solicitor (Mr Otto Stichter, […]
