Some of the charges stem from the COVID-19 claims, while others are from other incidents, including vein treatment.

Mok has been under investigation for more than a year, officials said. Employees contacted investigators recently about COVID-19-related billing that they thought was concerning.

Authorities raided the headquarters of Allure Medical Spa at 26 Mile Road and Van Dyke on Thursday in connection with the alleged COVID-19 treatments.
