Oklahoma abortion doctor facing felony charges loses state medical license


A doctor accused of providing abortion-inducing drugs to three undercover investigators who were not actually pregnant can no longer practice medicine in Oklahoma.

Dr. Naresh G. Patel, 62, of Oklahoma City, on Monday agreed not to practice medicine in the state, pending an investigation into the allegations by the state Medical Licensure Board.

Patel was arrested Dec. 9 at his Warr Acres clinic and is charged with one count of racketeering and three counts of obtaining money by false pretenses. Prosecutors allege the women paid Patel $620 each for drugs he knew were not necessary.



Now if some states would start prosecuting PP for Medicaid fraud, we’d be getting somewhere.
