Everything about Dr. Farid Fata’s case seemed too egregious to be true.
When a whistleblower tipped off the Department of Justice back in 2013 about Dr. Fata’s unprecedented medical malpractice, government officials had a hard time wrapping their heads around the claims — at first. How could a renowned Michigan oncologist intentionally misdiagnose patients and then inject them with chemotherapy treatments? And how could he intentionally underdose patients who did in fact have cancer?
In total, 553 patients and their loved ones were victimized.
