A federal jury in Detroit convicted unlicensed Detroit physician Wilfred Griffith for his participation in a nearly $4.7M fraud scheme. According to evidence presented at trial, Griffith worked as an unlicensed physician at Phoenix Visiting Physicians in 2010 and 2011 where he treated Medicare beneficiaries and used prescription pads pre-signed by Dr. Dwight Smith to prescribe medicine. He also referred Medicare beneficiaries to Detroit-area home health company Cherish Home Health Services Inc. in exchange for kickbacks. Griffith used the names and signatures of Dr. Smith and two other Detroit-area physicians to certify the beneficiaries were homebound and needed home health services when they did not. DOJ
