Doctor To Be Sentenced For Giving Chemo To Cancer-Free Patients

(MICHIGAN)  Prosecutors are seeking a 175-year sentence for a Michigan doctor who intentionally misdiagnosed hundreds of healthy patients with cancer to line his pockets.

A sentencing hearing began Monday for Dr. Farid Fata, who gave unnecessary cancer treatments to 553 patients. Fata was arrested back in 2013 for the health care fraud.

“There is no real justice,” victim Geraldine Parkin said, adding that she hopes her anger and frustration will finally go away once Fata is sentenced.

Arthur Aidala said this morning on “Fox and Friends” that getting chemo when you don’t have cancer “destroys your insides.”

He said that the lesson to be learned here is to ask to see lab reports and paperwork.

Dr. Keith Ablow added that this case proves that doctors aren’t good enough at supervising other doctors.
