The Texas medical doctor who says she’s the victim of a fraud scheme says her story has changed.
Lawyer Linda H. Lee is trying to stop a wrongful death lawsuit against her for allegedly forging prescriptions and falsifying lab results for an anti-inflammatory drug.
Lee says her client had a seizure on Dec. 13, 2016, when she was 21.
She says she took her son to the hospital but they were too sick to attend, and they were prescribed an antiepileptic drug called Janssen.
When the son was admitted to the emergency room, Lee says he was given a prescription for Janssens and a seizure.
She claims he went into cardiac arrest and was placed in a medically induced coma.
When he was awake for the first few days, Lee said, he didn’t complain about the seizure, and he even told Lee he felt fine.
Lee says she saw Jansdens as a miracle drug, but it didn’t make any difference.
She and her lawyer, lawyer Jim Dolan, say Lee fabricated the results for the antiepic drug.
The Texas Medical Board of Health suspended Lee’s license in January 2017 after a federal judge ruled she was defrauding doctors and hospitals out of millions of dollars.
The medical board issued a written statement to The Associated Press saying that the doctor had been suspended and would be required to pay a $10,000 fine, and that her license was suspended for 90 days and the hospital was fined $100,000.
Lee’s attorney says she has a criminal history and a long history of fraudulent activities.
Dolan says she told the board the claims were false and they will not be pursuing the case.
Dolas says he thinks the board will be able to prove Lee’s story is bogus.
