Dr. Norman A. Brooks, a dermatologist and surgeon and owner of Skin Cancer Medical Center in Encino, agreed to pay roughly $2.7 million to resolve allegations he submitted bills to Medicare for Mohs micrographic surgeries for skin cancers that were medically unnecessary. The government alleged that Brooks falsely diagnosed skin cancer in some of his patients so that he could perform, and bill for, Mohs surgeries. The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit by former employee Janet Burke. She will receive a whistleblower award of roughly $483,000 from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.
