Ringleader of Healthcare Fraud Scam Indicted Following CPM Lawsuit

In June, the FBI arrested Los Angeles-based chiropractor Bahar Gharib-Danesh, the alleged ringleader of a vast healthcare conspiracy first made public in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by CPM. According to CPM’s lawsuit, which became public early this year, Danesh controls seven pain management clinics in Southern California. The complaint alleges that the clinics instituted and engaged in a pattern and practice of ordering dozens of tests, treatments, and medications for all patients, regardless of injury or proper medical diagnosis. The case is being handled by CPM attorneys Justin Berger and Robert Hutchinson.
