Houston oncologist accused of fraud

Posted on Thursday, February 2nd, 2012    

A Houston oncologist who came under fire in the 1990s for his controversial cancer treatments is facing new accusations of fraud.

A 61 year-old patient of his claims that his clinic charged her credit card $60,000 without her permission, failed to tell her she was purchasing her prescriptions from a pharmacy the doctor owned, and that she was treated with medicine only available in clinical trials.

The oncologist strongly refutes her accusations, stating that she signed several consent forms that explicitly said that the pharmacy was owned by the doctor and that she never was given medicine that was a part of any clinical trials.
