We rely on doctors to keep us safe, keep us healthy, and to always be completely honest with us no matter the situation. Unfortunately this is not a perfect world and rules are always being broken.
One example is that some doctors are now confessing to intentionally diagnosing healthy people with cancer to make money. The reason is that when a patient is diagnosed with cancer, the doctors receive a kickback with treatments such as chemotherapy.
Dr. Farid Fata, who practices out of Michigan, is the most recent doctor to confess to this crime.
Over a year ago in court, Dr. Fata admitted that he intentionally and wrongfully diagnosed healthy patients with cancer. He also admitted that he gave those patients chemotherapy drugs for the sole purpose of making a profit.
Do you think his patients were shocked? Absolutely they were. No one would ever suspect a doctor to stoop so low to fake a diagnosis and also have the nerve to give medication for that fake diagnosis so they can make a profit. Many would call this kind of act unconscionable.
Retired Oncologist Dr. Sayed Mohammed says he noticed this trend about a decade ago, “Many of these unscrupulous Physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands–a very dangerous combination when money is involved.”
Fata was charged with a $35-million Medicare fraud scheme that included billing the government for medically unnecessary oncology and hematology treatments.
