Indian-Immigrant MD Caught in ‘Drugs for Sex’ Embarrassment

Our Third World Assassins just keep right on keepin’ on . . . .

“Doctors who exploit patients are the worst kind of predators.” (San Diego DEA Agent-in-Charge William Sherman)


Dr Naga Raja Thota

In the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, Doctor Naga Raja Thota was handcuffed and taken to jail last week. He has been charged with Illegal Narcotic Distribution in a particularly sleazy scheme.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Thota, age 62, was taken into custody by San Diego DEA agents at his clinic, the Pain Management Center, located at 2732 Navajo Road in El Cajon. He was arraigned in Federal Court Wednesday before Judge Bernie Skomal.

The charges are supported by sworn statements by at least three women, that they regularly received oxycodone prescriptions for no medical need, in exchange for sex acts. The investigation revealed a clear pattern of illegal behavior by Thota, in which sexually-explicit texts were retrieved by police, between the physician and the women, followed immediately by illegal prescriptions.


The case record states one of the women reported she met Thota when she was in the hospital for drug addiction. Before she was released, Thota falsified her medical chart to indicate he was treating her for pain, even though she was in no real pain at all.

The woman, age 20 at the time, told police she was addicted, and agreed to sexual liaisons with the doctor in order to keep getting the drugs. Investigators say she reported that her sexual relationship with the doctor began 3 days after she met him. She said he called and asked her out and the drug gravy train was well on its way.


Thota is being held in San Diego on 7 charges of dispensing opioids for no medical reason. He could get 20 years in federal prison and a $1,000,000 fine.

Judge Skomal set the daffy doc’s bail at $100,000.

(Anyone with information regarding other victims of Dr. Thota was urged to contact the DEA at 858-616-4100)

    Yes, Dr.Thota’s office is about a mile away from me. A very dear friend who has had 9 back surgeries and a stroke was referred to him for pain management. She was not on opiates and over 50 and saw him once a month for more than a year and dropped him a few months ago. Dr. Thota spent less than 5 minutes per visit with her and she didn’t care for his associate when he was out of the office several months ago. At the time, Dr. Thota was out on probation for a “whole” month. We are glad she switched to another doctor before the crimes really came out to the media. My hope is that the new doctor is “decent” and accountable. This trend of abuse has come to the forefront more and more. It is frightening! Thanks for keeping us all informed!
