PATIENTS’ LIVES MATTER!!! Doctor caught making millions from false Cancer Diagnoses and unnecessary Cancer Treatments

I'm not sure why this story has not made national news…….

For years, Dr. Farid Fata of Detroit, Michigan, gave patients [almost all African Americans]  harmful and painful cancer treatments they did not need, all so he could bill insurance companies for the services, and in turn, put money in his pocket.

No one knows for sure how many people he tortured and killed in this way……

……. but Fata was ultimately sentenced to 45 years in federal prison for violating the trust of more than 550 patients, and stealing $17 million from the government via fraudulent billings, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Fata told people that they had cancer when they didn't, and in some instances, subjected them to years of needless chemotherapy and radiation.

He also continued prescribing those same harmful treatments to patients he knew weren't going to survive anyway.

His scam, which is described as one of the most egregious cases of medical fraud in history, only came to an end after one of his many physician's assistants noticed something was very wrong about Fata's practice…

….. eventually discovering that the doctor had wrongfully and purposefully diagnosed a patient with cancer.


It's been nearly a year since Fata was locked up. But the suffering he caused still continues.

A report released by the U.S. Department of Justice includes Victim Impact Statements detailing their horrifying experiences as a result of Fata's crimes.
