In 2011, it’s reported that the Florida Department of Health investigated Bosch but let him go without ever actually interviewing. Responding to anonymous tip, the DOH heard that Tony Bosch was practicing medicine without a license out of his offices near Miami University. His company, was then known as BioKem but became Biogenesis, was under surveillance by DOH investigators for four months between June and September 2011. The report into the investigation states that Bosch’s business partner, Carlos Acevedo, who is also under investigation by the MLB, was interviewed by the DOH in 2011. The report on his interview reads:

Contact was made with Carlos Acevedo, who was cooperative and offered a tour of this small office. It should be noted that this appeared to be a business office and not a medical office. No medical equipment was observed by this investigator. Mr. Acevedo stated BioKem is a marketing business that generates referrals to medical offices for weight loss and anti-aging. When asked if any medical doctors were employed, Mr. Acevedo stated the only doctor employed is Anthony Bosch, who is a PhD and not a medical doctor. Mr. Acevedo stated that Anthony Bosch is rarely in the office and is normally working to develop new referrals. No evidence has been found that the subject, Anthony Bosch, is practicing medicine.

The Miami New-Times described Bosch at the time as a “well-known hobnobber in Latin American baseball circles.” The report also states that neither of the Bosch family had criminal records, though Dr. Pedro Bosch faced a malpractice suit in 2004 that was dismissed.
