New York surgeon Syed Imran Ahmed was sentenced to 156 months in prison — and ordered to pay roughly $7 million in restitution, forfeit roughly $7 million and pay a $20,000 fine — for his role in a scheme that involved the submission of millions of dollars in false and fraudulent claims to Medicare. According to evidence presented at trial, Ahmed, who practiced at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center and Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, Franklin Hospital in Valley Stream, and Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, New York, billed the Medicare program for incision-and-drainage and wound debridement procedures that he did not perform. DOJ
