As I stated in an earlier post, eye doctor Dr. John Kiely has been sued by the federal goverment for fruad for allegedly performing unnecessary procedures. Several people have asked me for a copy of the Federal Goverment’s civil fraud lawsuit againat eye doctor Dr. John Kiely. Here it is: Download file
A Baltimore eye doctor has been accused by the U.S. government of committing fraud by billing thousands and thousands of dollars for hundreds of unnecessary eye procedures that he performed on dozens of people at an outpatient clinic owned by Bon Secours Hospital. The accusations are set forth in a federal lawsuit which claims that between 10/29/02 and 4/14/09 Dr. John Arthur Kiely performed laser eye surgery on patients who did not need the procedure, and thus falsely billed Medicare and Medicaid for the unnecessary procedures. Dr. Kiely also has offices on St. Paul Street and Mercy Medical Center.
According to the lawsuit, Dr. Kiely sometimes performed the unnecessary procedures multiple times on a single patient, which clearly is medical malpractice. The procedures are alleged to have caused people to suffer unnecessary medical complications, including blindness in one woman. Dr. Kiely has had offices on St. Paul Street and at Mercy Medical Center.
The allegations of against Dr. Kiely sound similar to those against two other Maryland doctors. The first is Dr. Mark G. Midei who has been sued in hundreds of cases for allegedly placing unnecessary cardiac stents into patients at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson. The second is Dr. John R. McLean, a Salisbury doctor who was criminally indicted for fraud resulting from allegedly placing unnecessary stents in patients at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
