Florida physician Gary L. Marder, and the owner of the Allergy, Dermatology & Skin Cancer Centers in Port St. Lucie and Okeechobee, stipulated to a consent final judgment of over $18 million to settle False Claims Act allegations that Dr. Marder submitted claims to federal healthcare programs for medically unnecessary biopsies and radiation therapy services, radiation therapy services performed in contravention of standard practice regarding the amount of time between radiation treatments, and radiation therapy services performed without direct supervision and by unlicensed and/or unqualified physician assistants.  Dr. Kendall also allegedly submitted false claims to federal and state healthcare programs for laboratory services tainted by kickbacks to, and improper financial relationships with, Dr. Marder.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Dr. Theodore A. Schiff under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  He will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (SDFL)
