Wisconsin issues injunction against social worker Lawrence A. Kane III

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 2:01 pm

On December 20, 2012, the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services issued an Administrative Injunction against Lawrence A. Kane, III. The state’s document states that Kane surrendered his clinical social worker license and professional counselor licenses to the Wisconsin Marriage & Family Therapy, Professional Counseling and Social Work Examining Board on December 12, 2011 and February 3, 2012, respectively. Kane, had been earlier charged by the Board with engaging in false advertising; permitting an unlicensed person to practice psychotherapy; engaging in misleading business and billing practices to the detriment of his patients; intentionally violating patient confidences, among other things. The Injunction document states that Kane continued to see and treat clients at his clinics after surrendering his license, and routinely contacted clients’ physicians to consult with and discuss the treatment provided.



  1. According to this article-Larry Kane has ‘surrendered’ his license due to unethical behavior….so WHY is he still seeing and ‘treating’ patients? His joke of a clinic is STILL open…in fact he has Open clinics in Mequon and Hales corners. This guy is such a fraud. Until recently-I had been a patient at this clinicians have observed the continued unethical behavior and actions of Larry Kane. He is a crook,a liar and his priority is NOT the well being of his patients-but the well being of his wallet. He scams money left and right,charges outrageous fees and shouldn’t be anywhere NEAR the field of treating people. People struggling with addictions- reach out for help when they are desperate to save their own lives. Larry is unprofessional, unethical and is running this clinic borderline illegally ….further investigation is NEEDED.

  2. Larry has mismanaged this clinic for years… If his license is suspended-
    WHY is he still practicing? He has at least TWO in Mequon Wisconsin and another in Hales Corners. People are literally putting their lives in his hands and his priority is himself and money. I need to know WHY more action hasn’t taken place to shut this guy down for good.

    • Hi,

      It appears the injunction was filed to get him to stop practicing after his license was suspended. If you have evidence that he is continuing to practice even after the filing of the injunction, you should contact the state medical board and report it to them.

      • I am replying to ‘Sue’ who had informed me- that if Larry Kane was continuing to practice-which he is-to alert the medical bureau… However…I have no further information as to how to do that. If possible,please let me know how to best contact them. This man has stripped far too many of money, proper health care…not to mention money. I appreciate any and all information…

  4. This guy is working for The Pines Treatment Center in Wautoma know, also claiming its a Suboxone clinic but what I hear is its a madhouse, the staff are worse than the patients.

    • The state should be made aware that he is still practicing. He has a “summer” (off the backs of his patients) home in Wautoma hence the move there. It is my understanding that he cannot practice but can still operate a treatment facility. He needs to be sued for everything he has. This is the only way to get him out of business. I was a patient and worked for him as I was unemployed. I did not receive 1 paycheck after weeks of work. I heard he does this with many of his patients.

  5. Larry Kane is currently providing various types of therapy at 10532 N Port Washington RD in Mequon, WI…..Did not tell me my INS was not in network until after he billed my Credit card over $1100 for 4 visits…..I could go on forever with the the complaints I have read about him…..I will add however he had the nerve to tell me ” I do not exercise enough and I would be more healthy if I did” I honestly thought he was joking as I do not have any health problems nor have I ever and he said this to me with his pack of cigarettes on the table in front of us. Also before I noticed the cigarettes I noticed his office smelled like cigarette smoke…Its illegal for anyone to smoke in a Tavern in Wisconsin and this guy does it in his own mental / medical facility…….UNREAL
