Pakistani MD Admits Multi-million-Dollar Fraud

Dr. Abdul Razaq

Dr. Abdul Razaq

A Pakistani physician who lives and works in Maryland has pleaded guilty to multiple fraud charges, which involved concealing the transfer of millions of dollars from the Pakistani government to fund lobbying efforts in the United States.

Doctor Abdul Razaq, an orthopedic surgeon, confessed to his part in a conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government by taking criminal tax deductions. The scheme managed to hide the transfer of what investigators believe was at least $3,500,000 from Pakistan government to fund lobbying efforts in America related to Kashmir.

According to Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin, Razaq faces a five year prison term when he is sentenced next summer.

Our Observations:

This physician was born and raised in Pakistan. He emigrated to the U.S. after graduating from Dow Medical College in Karachi in 1967. As so many thousands of other criminal doctors who emigrate here, he soon learned there are a myriad ways to make money besides the simple practice of medicine.

He may or may not spend any time in prison. But we can promise you he will not be subject to deportation. The U.S. does not deport criminal physicians. We relicense them and send them on their merry way.

Medical boards, relicensing criminals. Like Christmas, these are gifts that keep on giving . . . .

Connecticut MD Sexually Assaults Patient; Then Bills Insurance

Doctor Edwin Njoku

Doctor Edwin Njoku

In the city of East Hartford a physician already in prison for sexually assaulting a woman patient has been found guilty of actually having the nerve to bill Medicaid for the ‘examination’ during which the assault occurred.

Doctor Edwin Njoku, age 54, was convicted November 13 of felony “theft by defrauding” an insurance provider. As a result, his current 5-year sentence in state prison was extended by 18 months.

In August 2013, Njoku was found guilty of the original charge of sexual assault, as well as threatening a witness.

The good news is that the Connecticut State Department of Health revoked this nut’s license last year.

The bad news is, as in most cases of physician crime, Njoku will almost certainly be reissued another medical license in another state, when he is released from prison. And he will assuredly not be deported, as he would be in a saner society.

Ohio Court of Appeals: Doctor’s Life Sentence ‘Will Not be Overturned’

Doctor Paul H Volkman

Doctor Paul H Volkman

A Cincinnati-area physician whose pain clinics were discovered to be fronts for widespread drug-dealing was told by the Sixth Circuit Court  of Appeals last week that his sentence to life in federal prison would not be overturned.

Doctor Paul H. Volkman, originally from Chicago, was found guilty in 2012 of 17 felony charges, most of which related to criminal narcotic distribution. At least four people are known to have died as a result of taking drugs that Volkman has “prescribed,” but investigators believe as many as 14 other deaths are also linked to the physician’s “pill mill” activity.

What 'health care' has become . . .

Sadly, what too much ‘health care’ has become
