By BI: Patients tell horror stories as Lebanese MUSLIM cancer doctor, Farid Fatah, 50, gets 45 years for giving cancer treatment drugs to patients who did not need them — including some who didn’t actually have cancer at all. Some of them died as a result and hundreds suffered the devastating and debilitating effects of the toxic chemotherapy treatments.
CNN Dr. Farid Fata, 50, pleaded guilty in September to giving cancer treatments to misdiagnosed patients, telling some they had a terminal blood cancer called multiple myeloma. He pleaded guilty to 13 counts of Medicare fraud, one count of conspiracy to pay or receive kickbacks and two counts of money laundering.
Federal prosecutors called him the “most egregious fraudster in the history of this country.” To Fata, they said, “patients were not people. They were profit centers.”
Fata forfeited $17.6 million that he collected from Medicare and private insurance companies. Some 553 patients received medically unnecessary infusions or injections, prosecutors said.
According to the complaint, Fata employed hundreds of foreign doctors–most of them Muslims and Arabs–and did not even know if they were licensed to practice medicine. He had those foreign doctors administer the lethal chemotherapy to hundreds of patients per day who did not need it.
But Fata isn’t the only crooked Muslim doctor in the U.S.. Lebanese Drug Dealer & Medicare Defrauder Dr. Hussein ‘Sam’ Awada from Michigan also pleaded guilty to health care fraud in the hearing before U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds. He admitted billing Medicare, Medicaid, and Blue Cross Blue Shield for numerous medical procedures that were not medically justified and he sent millions of dollars stuffed in furniture back to Lebanon.
