Doctor falsifies cancer diagnoses to defraud millions

Dr Farid Fata, 49, pleaded guilty to 13 counts of healthcare fraud , one count of conspiring to receive kickbacks and one count of money laundering as the owner of a cancer treatment clinic and a diagnostic testing facility. 

“Dr Fata…  admitted he put greed before the health and safety of his patients, putting them through unnecessary chemotherapy and other treatments just so that he could collect additional millions from Medicare,” US assistant attorney general Leslie Caldwell said.
