Detroit-area cancer doctor who scammed patients was sentenced to 45 years in prison


Medicare and insurers paid at least $35 million. The patients were “women and men, old and young, of every race, religion, creed, profession, temperament and understanding,” prosecutors said. Some people were even treated for cancer not having it/ Fata “shut down whatever compassion he had as a doctor and switched it to making money …[doing this in a] “huge, horrific series of criminal acts.”” U.S. District Judge Paul Borman said. Fata offered no excuses. Federal prosecutor Catherine Dick had asked for a 175-year prison sentence. “I misused my talents, yes, and permitted this sin to enter me because of power and greed,” Fata finally admitted.
