As consumers we all want accurate information on the web to search and I came across another couple of listings that show this MD, who has now admitted to fraud and was on the search list by the FBI for a number of years. The Post Tribune has this update here. These are screenshots that still show the former address of the practice in Indiana as well as phone numbers to contact. I think consumers would have been hard pressed to find this MD on the glacier. I blogged this story myself back in December of 2009.
Somewhere along the line if sites are going to provide consumers with accurate search information, especially in cases that are pretty old, someone needs to be updating and not just keep passing along aggregated flawed information. There are a number of doctor and hospital search sties on the web that either create their information or subscribe or buy it from another source so perhaps they can all get together on this? BD
HealthGrades And Other MD Rating and Referral Sites List “Dead Doctors” on Their MD Information Pages And Even Include the Insurance Plans the “Dead Doctors” Honor
This is a strange story, but from the story here the doctor had committed fraud with insurance billing, had his license revoked and disappeared while on vacation in Greece. Boy this is a sad fate having to live at the end of a glacier in a tent after having 2 planes, a nice mansion, yachts and more. Crime doesn’t pay or not in this case it appears.
