In the Chicago community of Little Village a physician has been found guilty of healthcare fraud involving an elaborate kickback scam with a hospital which has since been closed down.
Doctor Subir Maitra, age 74, was convicted in a scheme at Sacred Heart Hospital on the city’s West Side, which according to investigators, involved numerous criminal acts, including hundreds of unnecessary penile implants, paid for by fraudulent billing of Medicare.
Madman Maitra also pleaded guilty in another case in Indiana, where he would send patients to other clinics across state lines and illegally charge their insurance companies for surgeries that ought never have been performed.
Prosecutors proved that in the Sacred Heart Hospital scam alone, which ended with a dramatic police raid last year, the wayward physician had received more than $225,000 in cash and another $2,000,000 in illegal reimbursements.
In the Indiana case, Maitra routinely pursued Hispanic patients who spoke little or no English, but were covered by private insurance. He would send patients to Hind Hospital and Lakeside Surgery Center for urological procedures which were unnecessary.
At the time of the alleged fraud, Lakeside Surgery Center was owned by pharmacist Raghuveer Nayak, another Indian-born criminal who was later convicted of secret payoffs.
Here’s more on these two Third World Assassins:

No nation on earth generates more foreign-born medical criminals to the U.S. than India.
Daffy Doc Maitra graduated from the University of Calcutta / N.R.S. Medical College in India.
We suspect they are rather ashamed of their criminal alumnus.
