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.

    I really got a kick out of the response from her employed, Baylor College of Medicine!

    • Hey, Doctor Watchdog –

      Thanks for the tip. And I can promise you that if and when Doctor Angela Siler-Fisher is found guilty, we will dutifully etch her name onto our ever-growing wall of shame.

      Because as long as Paramedics and nurses are expected to toe the line, we damn well expect to see some physician toes lined up, too.

      Please do keep writing, and have a terrific Holiday season.

      Yeah, Mike, a lot of misconduct goes on behind those closed doors. I have on file nearly 10,000 reports of doctors sexually abusing female patients.
