From the Daily News:

It was no joke when the feds showed up Wednesday to arrest a Brooklyn proctologist on Medicare fraud charges at his posh oceanfront condo.

Dr. Boris Sachakov, who was hauled off in handcuffs, is accused of bilking $3.5 million through phony bills from his Colon and Rectal Care of New York in Brighton Beach.

The red flags included $60,020 in bills for 85 hemorrhoidectomies Sachakov claimed he had performed on one unfortunate patient in 20 months.

Sachakov, a solo practitioner, often billed for working more than 24 hours a day, officials said.

He was supposedly so busy he claimed to have performed 6,593 hemorrhoidectomies and other procedures between February 2009 and January 2010.

The next busiest proctology clinic in the country billed Medicare for a mere 381 procedures in the same time period, a criminal complaint said.

Investigators from the Medicare Fraud Strike Force began examining Sachakov’s practice after complaints from patients who said he submitted claims formedical services they did not receive.

…Sachakov, 41, was released on $500,000 bond. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

    It’s about time… go after all these crooks. Maybe if we got rid of all the medical fraud we would be in a deficit.

      True, but I only just saw it and thought it was worth passing on. Seems a lot of people didn’t know about the bust, even though they knew his clinic.

    I’m not sure which to go with:
    1) Orangutan Arms
    2) This guy really takes his right to ‘bear arms’ seriously.

    I work for a medical billing company in which this doctor used. He gave us the bills and we billed them and every week there was about a stack of papers knee high EVERYWEEK. Also when there was some problem with the billing and the insurance asked him for medical notes, in which we asked him to send us so we can send to insurance companys he never had any medical notes on any patients and he just said write off the claim. also FBI and other agencys came to our billing office on Bay Parkway and demanded we give them all the files and all the claims we have archived. our whole office is russian speaking elderly ladys so typically we were all scared of why they are here. Boris was always so agrivated and mean about everything he was noted in our office as boris sa-jackoff. we always thought he was mean because he examines peoples anus’s all day, lol. pretty crazy how much money he made.

    There is famous host Steve Kaplan on “russian” radio, author of a wonderful poem
    about Boris Sachakov. No one knows how much Boris Sachakov has paid to him.
    No qualms, no regrets, no honesty.
