Accused Fake Doctor Denies Charges

He's accused of pretending to be a doctor and writing medical prescriptions to several people.

Friday, Ashish Vyas went before a Fayette County judge to answer to charges of unlawfully prescribing medications, but he tells us its all a big misunderstanding.

After pleading not guilty, Vyas told 27 NEWSFIRST he did indeed graduate from Grace University Medical School in St Kitts in the Netherlands Antilles.

We reported in the past that he is not a licensed physician in Kentucky or any surrounding states. Vyas says he does not have a license, but is applying for one while finishing up his boards.

Mike Rodman from the Kentucky Medical Board of Licensure says they have never had an applicant from Grace University.

Meanwhile, Bluegrass Community and Technical College, where Vyas taught, says he does have the proper credentials to teach the course work assigned, and no students will be required to re-take any of those classes in order to get credit.

Vyas will be back in court later this month.

    Ash is a good man that has some issues I think people knew that he was not a dr and used him and are now letting him take the fall... they wanted diet pills and knew he could call them in for them.

    I personally think that many people have been either mislead by the NEWS or my ASH. I personally want to think that the NEWS is making a MOUNTAIN out of nothing. Ash was an excellent Instructor and i learned a great deal under him. I wish things would be better and hope that this is all a BIG misunderstanding. I am also hoping if ASH is innocent that the media will also acknowledge that they have done a great MISJUSTICE to a man. If Ash is guilty then i am going to be so disappointed ina person that i thought the world of. Kevin
