Feds join NY in lawsuits against doctors for kickbacks violations

New York enforcement officers arrested five doctors in March based on allegations of kickback violations and the illegal acceptance of bribes. The doctors maintained their innocence and pled not guilty before a federal court in Manhattan.

A pediatric surgeon facing allegations of cybersnooping on his now ex-girlfriend is in the midst a national debate over when a physician should lose his or her hospital privileges. Should the hospital consider a physician accused of a crime innocent until proven guilty? Or should the accused physician lose his or her right to practice based on criminal charges alone?

She died within 24-hours of the transfer. The psychiatric center responsible for her care is facing criticism from the state for its role in the girl’s death.
