A pair of South Surrey business owners are facing a number of accusations from the College of Naturopathic Physicians of B.C.

In a petition filed in B.C. Supreme Court Aug. 14, the college alleges Sarge Sandhu and wife Sam Samrai – owners of South Point Natural Therapies – performed restricted activities, such as offering injections, and improperly used the title of doctor while dealing with clients.

The college’s list of grievances also includes that the duo have been implying that they are associated with the college and are naturopathic doctors.

The petition asks the court for a permanent injunction to prohibit the pair from practicing naturopathic medicine, administering injections, using the title naturopathic doctor, using the word “naturopathic” to describe any of their services and using the title “doctor” or “physician” in the course of providing professional services to the public.

Sandhu and Samrai have not yet filed a response to the petition and did not respond to Peace Arch News’ request for comment.

Tuesday, a woman who identified herself as the office manager, said she has been instructed to tell media who leave a message for the owners that “if we are not calling back, there is no comment.”
