79-Year-Old Cardiologist Sentenced To 6 Years In Prison For Fen-Phen Fraud Reply

A 79-year-old Florida cardiologist has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for his participation in the Fen-Phen fraud, according to a report by John Martin on Philly.Com. The article notes that other cardiologists have been convicted for similar reasons in the Fen-Phen case, but Tai’s case is unusual because of the length of the sentence.

The cardiologist, Dr. Abdur Razzak Tai, was convicted last September. Here is how the US Department of Justice summarized the case at the time:

Between 1997 and 2009, Tai… reviewed the echocardiograms of more than 1,100 patients who filed claims with the American Home Product Settlement Trust in Philadelphia and falsely certified that the patients’ tests showed that they had sustained heart damage. In reality, many of those claimants had not been harmed.
