Can a patient of Dr. Farid Fata file a lawsuit for unnecessary treatment?

Attention: We sincerely regret that we are unable to accept any cases against Dr. Farid Fata, who was recently sentenced to a 45 year prison term. Victims of Dr. Fata may wish to contact the federal procesecutor's office to determine if a claim can be made for restitution at his sentencing hearing.

Yes, a patient can file a lawsuit for unnecessary treatment.  If a patient is diagnosed incorrectly and/or diagnosed with a condition they do not have and therefore goes under unnecessary treatment, they do have legal rights and may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against Dr. Farid Fata for his negligence.

Federal agents arrested the doctor out of his Rochester Hills practice yesterday, August 7th in the a.m. hours.  He is charged with healthcare fraud and the misdiagnosis of patients, treating them with unnecessary treatment, in order to submit claim to Medicare for expensive testing. Federal officials are alleging that “Dr. Fata submitted false claims to Medicare for treatments that were unnecessary and misdiagnosed patients as having cancer and giving them unnecessary chemotherapy treatment in order to justify expensive billing.”
