BOSTON (Legal Newsline) — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey has announced that two Florida companies will pay $17 million after allegations of deceptive marketing related to erectile dysfunction medications and services.

 

“Patients entrust medical providers with their health and well-being, and all patients deserve access to honest and proper care,” Healey said. “Medical providers cannot mislead Massachusetts consumers about their services and medications. Our office will continue to pursue those who prey on vulnerable patients who are simply seeking medical care.”

 

A Suffolk Superior Court judgment permanently bars Florida Medical Clinic LLC (FMMC) and Men’s Medical Clinic LLC (MMC) from operating unlicensed medical clinics in the state or deceptively marketing their services and products.

 

The defendants allegedly used deceptive practices to lure more than 4,000 consumers to the unlicensed facilities.

 

Of the $17 million in penalties, $6.3 million will go toward restitution for Massachusetts consumers.

 

The case is being handled by assistant attorney general Emiliano Mazlen with assistance from division chief Karen Tseng and legal analyst Kathryn Doty of Healey’s Health Care Division, and Kevin McCarthy and Anthony Crespi of the Civil Investigations Division.
