Mid-Eastern MD Who Poisoned American Patients Will Spend 40 Years in a Cage

Here’s an idea: Come to America. Ignore the vapid, toothless physician ‘oversight’. Rip off insurance payers by faking medical conditions. Injure and kill the appallingly gullible citizens who walk through the door. Retire a multi-millionaire back in your own country.

Lebanese emigrant Doctor Farid Fata will spend at least the next four decades in federal prison. The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to consider his appeal.

Fata’s attorneys had appealed to the Supreme Court after the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against him 2 years ago, saying this:

Dr Farid Fata and wife

This pair of immigrant criminals were preparing to buy a CASTLE, with the millions they amassed by damaging the health of U.S. citizens.

“This doctor made false diagnoses and administered deadly, medically unnecessary, treatments for hundreds of patients. These patients relied on his presumed integrity and they accepted his presumed professional judgments — all to their detriment and to Fata’s financial gain.”

Then the highest court in America announced yesterday in a brief statement that they too have turned down Fata’s appeal, and will therefore not hear the case.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office identified  a shocking 550 victims, but suspect there have been many more. This particular medical monster treated at least 17,000 patients via his criminal enterprise – 7 Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers from at least 2009-2014.

The Supreme Court’s announcement comes 3 years after the Detroit-area physician confessed to poisoning literally hundreds of patients deliberately, inflicting unnecessary treatments and administering dangerous chemotherapy regimens. Some patients lost their teeth because of the unconscionable madman. No matter. By doing so he amassed $17,000,000 by illegally billing insurance providers.

Here are just a few of this healthcare embarrassment’s poor victims – most of whom were falsely told they had cancer and needed chemotherapy “immediately”

The scamming, extremely dangerous doctor is a naturalized citizen whose native country is Lebanon. He was charged with operating a scam clinic empire that billed Medicare for thousands of totally unnecessary cancer treatments. After his arrest in 2013, government agents seized his mansion and numerous bank accounts. They established a $12,000,000 fund to assist the victims continued care and living expenses. 

Federal agents actually recovered $13,000,000 of stolen money  but $1,000,000 was paid to the whistle-blower in the case.

Doctor Elana Shamji was ‘Planning to Escape’ in Weeks Before Her Murder

A chance encounter between a Toronto real estate agent and Doctor Elana Shamji has shed some new light on the prosecution’s case for murder against her husband.

The real estate agent – who is asking to not be identified – told police she met the Scarborough Hospital family doctor while canvassing her upscale neighborhood one day for potential home-sellers, in September 2016.

“I knocked on her door and we chatted on the steps for a while. She was very nice . . . very sweet. But I could sense something was bothering her,” the woman recalled in an interview with police. They now know Elana Shamji was planning to leave her unhappy marriage; to move from the family home and into the center of town closer to her work.

The real estate agent fears for her safety, because she will likely be called as a witness at the upcoming trial of the neurosurgeon. She asks that her name not be revealed. She says that “I was just asking her if she’d ever thought of selling her home. I was looking for sales leads. And she said she just might be. I got the clear feeling that she was about to leave her husband. I think she knew she had to leave . . . that she might be in danger.”

They exchanged phone numbers and planned to stay in touch.  But several months went by and they never spoke again.

Then, in the first week of December, the agent happened to see a television news story about the police discovering a lady doctor’s body, found stuffed into a large suitcase near the Humber River a few days before.  They announced the arrest of her husband, Doctor Mohammed Shamji, on the charge of First Degree Murder.

At first, the agent didn’t connect the horrifying story to the woman she’d met, until her coworker called and they started talking about the case during the newscast. And when they showed a picture of a smiling Doctor Alana Shamji on the screen – she knew.

“Oh my God. That’s the nice woman with the little girl I’d spoken to months earlier.”

Canadian Neurosurgeon Charged With Killing His Doctor Wife

To nearly all who knew them, their lives were the perfect picture of medical professionals on the rise. He was 40 years old and a respected Canadian neurosurgeon. She was a beloved family medicine specialist and in the early stages of political advocacy. They had a stunning home in the Toronto suburb of North York, 3 young children, and a social network chock-full of fun photos together. They documented their exotic vacations as well as their marathon running competitions.

But now, the poor children are in the care of relatives; the estate is about to be sold; Doctor Elana Fric Shamji is dead of “strangulation and blunt-force trauma,” and her husband, Doctor Mohammed Shamji, sits in jail, believed by police to be the murderer of his wife.

Doctor Elana Fric Shamji’s body, you see, was found stuffed into a large suitcase on the side of a road north of the city last December 1. Toronto police are certain he killed her, and Toronto’s medical community is in a serious state of shock.

Doctor Larry Erlick, the head of family medicine at The Scarborough Hospital where Doctor Flana Shamji  worked, and the former director of the Ontario Medical Association, told reporters that he knew –  in spite of her happy personality – there was serious trouble in her private life. And he was aware that she had just filed for divorce.

“She confided a lot in me,” he said, adding that he has spoken to police. “I don’t want to say a lot. There were issues … No one ever expects anything like this.”

He said the Ontario Medical Association is raising money for her children and to honor her legacy in a meaningful way. Physicians who knew her have had a series of meetings, to determine what their next steps should be.

Doctor Erlick described Elana – who was also 40 years old at the time of her death – as an emerging “physician leader” who had recently joined the policy committee of the medical association, which is involved with leveraging health-care reforms.

In the meantime, with some of his family members witnessing the sobering reality of a homicide trial, Doctor Mohammed Shamji made his first appearance at the Old City Hall Courtroom on December 4 in handcuffs. Police say he was found at a small café in Mississauga not long after his wife’s body was discovered. He was immediately charged with First Degree Murder.

“Imagine the nicest person in your workplace, and then, say, that person has been accused of killing their spouse,” one of his coworkers said. “He is nice to his assistants, he is nice to the residents he has with him, he is nice to nurse practitioners.”
