LOCAL DOCTOR & STAFFERS ARRESTED FOR MEDI-CAL FRAUD AND ‘DOCTOR SHOPPING’ RING

April 15, 2010 (San Diego) California Attorney General Edmund G. “Jerry” Brown Jr. today announced the arrests of a Chula Vista doctor and two employees operating a "complex, multi-level scheme" that bilked more than $200,000 from low-income patients and government agencies by overcharging and prescribed pain medication to individuals who had no medical need for it.
"These individuals operated a complex, multi-level fraud scheme," Brown said. "Today's arrests are a result of the cooperative efforts of state and federal law enforcement to take this dirty doctor off the streets."
