Wonder if I was a proponent of doubt, not of believe belief. Where there's evidence of belief. I was raised always to doubt what I hear and when I was growing up, it did not change just became more sophisticated and I always would ask
the question why why long before George Courage, I worked for Doktor Fatah. His career in health care began with journalism for EL thoughts, I'm towards garages that drive to.
as comes naturally did George when he sees something wrong. He addresses
In the early nineties, George was working part time for asleep lab, while he was getting his masters degree part of his job as the medical staff was to prepare and submit the billing slips for the tests that we're done, which George found two odd billing seemed like a job for the billing department, as he was prepared.
The billing slept for the sleep studies. He noticed something even more odd Katy respiratory Channel and the Ici. These were all called police on the grounds collective,
typically the doktor with bill, the insurance for a single bundled test, but what they were doing is unbundling the components of asleep test and submitting them separately doing that allowed them to get seven eight ten times the revenue from each
TAT. They were doing so. We are making a ton more money than they would otherwise and they were getting paid,
George realised. That was why the
Technicians were being asked to do the billing. If the doctors got caught, they could say it wasn't your fault. The implications of that is that Medicare Medicaid or look browser anyone else. It is looking at two three five years later can see the technicians Dana they add, sign it. They could suspect that they were involved or even
it themselves. George filed a complaint with Blue Cross copied everything he needed to prove the fraud and
and his resignation three
years later George was at home, washing dishes when he got a phone call when he answered he didn't recognize the voice. We said he was from the Federal Bureau of investigation. Part of me was saying holy cow part of me was saying: well it's about time, the F b I wanted to talk to George and they said Bulgaria can over now. Why don't see? Why not I'm not doing anything? I looked out the window and they had been park in front of

as if they were friends. George tell the agents when he knew and they asked if he still had any documents. There were surprised that I had actual copies of everything:
at some point, George Ass, the agent- if there was anything he can do to avoid getting found out as the informant, he was afraid he wouldn't be able to find a job again explained to him that I was kind of concerned about blow back about the hospital fighting the I turned the men and is there any kind of protection against is my being blacklisted. He said he had heard about a law that was on the books, it's for whistleblowers and he said I would look into it.

This is episode three of five living with this hell.
in the days following his conversation with doktor. So long lay George kept replaying. What he'd heard
their patients without giving chemotherapy the very last you leave now you can. He couldn't believe it was true that seems a little outlined reside. Stop myself from laughing. I thought it was more like you wanted. It started on practice and get out of his contract
George thought it over and the more he thought about it, the more it change the things had heard from other employees. In the past I started thinking about all of the other Noakes practice nurse or doctors. That would say things like we shouldn't have given this medication to patient and doktor thing. You know I'm not comfortable with this care plan and I began to think
Maybe some of what he is saying is true. George started poking around. He took us
lack of medical records to his office, and then he thought that might make him look suspicious, so he put them back. He made his spreadsheet with all the patients Doktor Fatah had seen.
from the last year and noted how many of them receive treatment as a result, and when I saw with the other physicians for every ten patients that they saw a consultation, maybe two or three would get treatment, but with actor Fatah out of ten patients between eighty and ninety percent of patients were getting some form of treatments.
you're saying Doktor Fatah you're getting treat, it certainly seemed suspicious. But
he needed a second opinion. He called up in it.
Ernie. He knew he said, George, the sounds very serious, but you have to have strong proof that you're going against the doktor, who is very prominent, and this could be easily refuted, so
it's you ve happened to run in a more information that cooperates
doktor monthly or any one else then come again, and then we'll talk about George was stuck here
when a search too much in the computer records, because that would create a paper trail with the right evidence. Perhaps something could be done.
George just needed to know where to look again,
Doktor Mandalay and George disagree about the details of their conversations, but in one they talked about a key treatment. Doktor far too was using an appropriately. It was
all I ve I e g as it happened,
there was one more person who was also getting suspicious of Doktor Fatah. It was almost like yet exists
ring to get into talked him to get any information from him and it was like getting thrown into
a movie where you're just a thing and what what is going on here
Mary sitter led had worked for Doktor Fatah since the winter of two thousand ten, like Joe
where'd. She knew the place had its corks. There were the chaotic patient loads. She already thought done
Your father was seeing so many patients that he couldn't keep up. I went in with a patient of mine that I was very close to and she was trying to get clarification on her plan of care and he was nodding off. Doktor Fatah did this many times
and often spent only two or three minutes with each patient, but this time the pay
It was sympathetic to him. She felt for him saying he just exhausted, and I said well, you ve been waiting for this parliament for the last four and a half weeks and getting sick from him off there be so I think he deserves somebody not to fall asleep,
When you're talking about your care, Michigan Hematology Oncology wasn't an ideal place to work by any means, but Mary didn't have a ton of options.
She was a single mom of a young son, and the committee was much more manageable than her last job, so she put up with Doktor Fatah. I felt kind of track because I was
allowed to move more than a hundred miles away from my ex husband do the law that time so I was stuck basically just trying to do what is best for my child. Mary is the type
its fired up rather quickly when she sees something wrong, though she had never had to question a doctor before
So when she began to grow suspicious of doktor far does care. She wanted answers, it stir
when the way he ordered chemo just seemed off. She suspected that he wasn't following protocol that he wasn't calculating the doses by the patient's height and wait a few times. She pressed dark
father on this, and he always had an explanation. He would just say it's european protocol. I can choose the doses that I want, but you know he's the doctor and he's the last say, and I mean I'm not going to do so. Many chemo, that's not my license.
In July, two thousand thirteen Mary had found something else. There was strange, Doktor Father was giving a drug treatment called intervened.
Amy no globular are I ve, I g moron.
And then should seen other doctors prescribe it. The drug was for patients with
compromised immune systems at systems at our last job, a hospital system with a doctor's she saw about two to three patients-
come in, for I ve I g, but Doktor Father saw about fifty patients a month at one location who came in for that treatment. It's a very powerful, doesn't have any side effects, but when given to the wrong person
some major problems. Mary did some digging. I went into my next week's worth of appointments and I had forty patients who were scheduled for ivy idea.
and I ran off all of their lambs and I highlighted all of their lambs and only two had ever qualified or needed it. Just
Mary started to feel overwhelmed with the possibility of what could be going on here? But what through? What? Through my mind, is? I have to find out if this is intentional or if this was a mistake or whatever, but I've happened upon this information and I need to do something with it
whether I keep my job gonna marry confided in doktor moonglade, and they discussed what to do. Then. She went to Doktor Fatah and put the papers on his desk and sad. These people don't need this medicine. The look on his face was his usual. Just look over his shoulder. Look up at you between his glasses and not see a thing
how dare you challenge me soon? After Mary says she was told to cancel all those appointments for the patients coming and for I ve, I e g the following week, and so I cancel them and although they would hear further from the doktor Mary didn't usually talk medical stuff with George Karadzic, but sometime after they ended
in a conversation in his office. When I
v I e g came up. That's when George learn
What had happened? I just said to him now that I found this out. Are we gonna get in trouble for something we didn't do? What do you think's gonna happen with this whole thing? I knew I had done the right thing, but it was just
the caravan shot. George thought, maybe Mary and Doktor moonglade concerns could all be explained. The issue with the ivy idee patience had been resolved
He still didn't think he had enough proof until he happened to speak with another nurse according to george- and she goes no George, you don't understand, I be I'd. She is just the tip of the iceberg. Just
the Tipp she goes, I'm leaving Georgia's head was swimming. Well, I do do I leave now with the others. Do I get to the department of just

They had their family sitting next to them and chairs telling them jokes and stories telling them we're. Gonna search, see a better you. It was all wrong they couldn't tell which ones were getting harm, which ones words. If
the suspicions were true and Doktor Fatah was hurting people. He was a criminal. This would need the attention of the Department of Justice. Now, with this new information in hand, Georgia's lawyer contacted the: U S: attorney's office, it was one place that could stop. Doc
