Ever Heard the Term ‘Third-World Assassins?’ Probably Not . . .

In the cloistered world of health care, there exists a curious term that pops up quietly among those  who treat patients for a living. The phrase is ‘third-world assassins’ –  dubbed TWA for short. TWA refers to foreign doctors who come here; are issued medical licenses in pretty nearly every state; then proceed to ply their trade, treating hundreds of thousands of citizens daily, with seriously unprofessional skill levels, motives, or functional moral compass.

We see dead people – all the time . . .

Why do American healthcare professionals refer to these people as TWAs?  Well, because as the name implies, they kill people with surprising regularity, due to either incompetence or indifference. More often, they injure patients daily, by totally unnecessary procedures, and then rob insurance carriers blind, as they dip into the well of the U.S. healthcare money trough.

And, we regret to tell you, the sheer numbers of Third World Assassins welcomed into naive American communities  are jaw-dropping.  Land of opportunity? You be the judge. Here’s just one:

Jonathan Agbebiyi, MD on his website  he announced ‘All of life comes to me with ease, joy & glory!’

Doctor Jonathan Agbebiyi, age 62, of Sterling Heights, Michigan, has now been convicted on 6 counts of Healthcare Fraud and one count of Conspiracy.  Agbebiyi, you see,  was a staff physician at three different clinics that operated in Livonia, Michigan between 2007 – 2010: Blessed Medical Clinic; Alpha Omega Medical Clinic; and Manuel Medical Clinic.

“This particular doctor exposed patients to totally unnecessary nerve testing for no other purpose than to generate money for himself. In these cases he billed the Medicare program for millions of dollars. We are grateful for the hard work of investigators, who uncovered this betrayal of medical ethics and theft of taxpayer funds.” ( U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade)

Evidence at trial revealed that thousands of patients were recruited by being lured by illegal drugs, cash payments and fast food. All 3 clinics then billed the Medicare program for thousands of diagnostic tests that were totally unnecessary.

Jonathan Agbebiyi, an obstetrician/gynecologist, was found to be a key part of a conspiracy to bill Medicare for medically unnecessary neurological tests – some of which involved sending electrical currents through the arms and legs of the patients.

This doctor immigrated to the U.S.; set up practice and then methodically started on his way to steal more than $5,000,000 dollars from American taxpayers. He was sentenced in 2012 to 5 years in federal prison.

Here’s another crook-look:
