Fake Doctor Anjali Mukerjee

Ranjit Mahanti

THE diet plans for ‘Miss Universe’ Lara Dutta, ‘Miss World’ Priyanka Chopra, ‘Miss India’ Gul Panag, Neha Dhupia and many other celebrities have been designed by a fake doctor. This pseudo is also into creating health awareness for the Mumbai police.

The person in question is none other than Anjali Mukerjee, celebrity nutritionist, columnist and author.

A Right To Information (RTI) reply revealed that Anjali Mukerjee cheated more than five lakh customers, mainly Bollywood celebrities and top bureaucrats, by posing as a doctor. On February 27, 2017, Dr Ved Tiwari complained to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanding an inquiry over her claims.

According to the complaint (copy with ABI), Anjali claims she cures obesity, digestive disorder, high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, menopausal complaints, chronic fatigue and low immunity using the Ayurvedic system. She also claims she has a degree and calls it MD (Alternative Medicines).

Dr Ved Tiwari

On a complaint by Tiwari, FDA officers raided Anjali Mukerjee Health Total ‘Clinic’ in Thane. Officers were informed that Anjali never visits the clinic. She has appointed BAMS and BHMS doctors in the clinic and they attend to the patient on behalf of her. On April 28, 2017, Anjali appeared before FDA officers. She said (FDA report copy with ABI) that:
1- She is not practicing as a doctor.
2- She runs her business only as a dietician and nutritionist.
3- She has a degree from Indian Council of Alternative Medicines, Kolkata, (Doctor of Medicines and Alternative Systems Registration No- 18701 and Alternative Systems of Medicines Registration No- 47073). She even produced the degree certificates. BUT BOTH DEGREES ARE NOT RECOGNISED BY ANY MEDICAL COUNCIL IN MAHARASHTRA AND DO NOT MAKE ANYBODY A REGISTERED MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.

As per Maharashtra government GR issued on August 19, 2000 (copy available with ABI) none can practice without obtaining registration in Maharashtra Medical Council, Maharashtra Dental Council, Council Of Indian Medicine and Maharashtra Homeopathic Council. GR further says if doctor found guilty under sections 33 (2) for practicing without registration in aforesaid councils it is punishable offence amounting to rigorous imprisonment of 1 to 3 years and cash penalty of Rs 1,000 to 5,000.

Anjali also accepted that she sends emails to the patients posing as a doctor to advertise her Health Total Pvt Ltd business. She also accepted to FDA officers that DOCTOR title was wrongly put in front of her name. Anjali later removed the DOCTOR word from her website.

On June 22, 2017, the FDA wrote a letter (copy with ABI) to the Brihannmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) suggesting action should be taken against Anjali Mukerjee and it should be informed about the action taken.

About Anjali Mukerjee in short
Anjali shot to fame in 1996 when she became an “Official Nutritionist” for the Femina Miss India contest. She consulted the contestants consecutively for eight years. The food plans of ‘Miss Universe’ Lara Dutta, ‘Miss World’ Priyanka Chopra, ‘Miss India’ Gul Panag, Neha Dhupia and many others were designed by her.

Anjali has delivered talks for the Mumbai traffic police to help the force stay healthy and fit.

She is the proprietor of Health Total, a chain of “Health Clinics” having 60 centres across India, including Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru, Indore and Nashik. Anjali cheated more than five lakh customers across the country posing as a DOCTOR through these centres.

Not only this doctor but there are many, several doctors who boasts and claim that they can cure root out the diseases like chronic acidity, depression, erectile dysfunction, sugar, arthritis pain etc on 100 % guarantee. But even the researchers of medical science are skeptical rooting out these ailments. Even the companies like Mankind, Alembic, Pfizer are throwing dust in the eyes of the doctors and all.The medical association and the relevant people are not a bit serious about their fraudulent ways.Hence health ministery and the concerned with the help of honest media are earnestly entreated to look into this… Read more »

I know Anjali indirectly and though I have never tried her simply because I have no drastic weight or drastic health issues by His grace alone but hey I have come to respect her. People are not fools to run away from these medical MDs and try naturopathy and other alternate solutions . This Dr Tiwari has to learn to swallow his pride and accept the fact that the lady has proved herself by showing positive results on her clients… and she has grown in leaps and bounds right before our eyes because people are benefiting.

If I ever an operation I will go to a surgeon not a alternative therapist. that’s my decision. I do not think any alternative health advisor can do a surgeon’s job and vice versa Neither can anyone without a MBBS degree prescribe allopathic medication – it is a crime. but there are other alternative parallel remedies in Ayurveda available and what’s wrong if people choose to use it – As far as I know Anjali is a qualified dietician her patients and if she has a fake PhD one can always find out. Why this big hate campaign and infighting… Read more »

Read the article carefully, even the degrees she is showing , are not recognized anywhere in Maharashtra,,

She is similar to “guggi pehalwan” of delhi , who is more famous than doctors of the same area, but doesn’t have any degree. He had made thousands well ,, but I have seen two cases where he ruined the life of the persons who later needed amputation of their hands

KRD- what a shame that you are defending a fraudster. If she had belief in her methods of treatment she did not have to pose as a doctor. This is called fraud. Alternative medicine is generally a belief and not exact science. Whilst I agree that western medicine cannot cure all human ailments, at least it provides scientific (and replicable) methods of treatment. Alternative medicine is uneregulated and therefore easily practiced by quacks like her. People like her use fancy advertisement tactics to lure customers by posing as doctors to gain respect from customers. Unfortunately the irony is that even… Read more »

She might or might not be a doctor she may not be , but she is a nutritionist who giv. But she and her supporting bams, bhms doctors have given me 100 percent results. I have also personally experienced and completely vouch for her. It’s called Health Total. Its run by a team of experts in this field. What’s it to you?? Why spoil somebody’s name. Somebody that has “effectively helped me and thousands of others with better health. I will stand with all at Health Total for the good work they have done for our society.

Yup… Clear misrepresentation.. she has gained popular vote so none of this affects her.
Bottom line dietitian are not doctor….but should need registered license to practice clinically…which many nutritionist with a valid degree apply for ….
Again…the demand for licence is not mandatory so everyone who does not have qualification is in this business model for easy money .

I have also been cheated by their outfit in Gurgaon as they gave me a eight month package and took the entire amount which was 50000+ . After 3 months I didn’t lose any weight and was told that it’s because of stress. I didn’t go back to them – no refund given either . I had knee problems and couldn’t go down to their basement clinic. Nobody knows anything there

This is about ethics. This is fraud if one was genuine then start something like Baba ramdev let people decide if you want to buy or not.
This is clear cheating case and this is criminal activity which should be punished. So that other learns imagine if a doctor pretends to be a doctor and by mistake she gives wrong diet ..Who is responsible ??? It’s like someone placing a bomb to hurt others and when his own kind dies in it then it hurts really bad..

A fake degree and practicing without registration is unethical and must be punished. It’s deliberately done to lure people and in the long run become famous. We in India become too lenient to rules and regulations which is why there are so much fraud and corruption. Which is why we do not progress and we tolerate unethical practices. It tells on us as a society and race.

I am indeed shocked to hear this. I have been a satisfied client of health total. She has doctors who are trained and they speak with conviction. Her diet and ayurvedic herbs and her diet food has made a lot of difference. To justify this I have also got my medicals done pre n post the health plan. I have seen amazing results. No diet in isolation can reduce your weight. No nutritionist can guarantee that one can lose weight by dieting. This has to be supplemented with exercise. It also depends on the body constitution.
