Dr. Farid Fata, who intentionally misdiagnosed healthy patients with cancer and gave them unnecessary expensive treatments so he could bill millions from insurance companies, will face a sentencing hearing on Monday. The hearing is expected to run for a week, according to The Detroit News.
A total of 150 former patients and family members of former patients filed victim impact statements with the court. Twenty-five of them will be given a chance to speak during the hearing, and they are each are given 10 minutes to testify.
Fata was arrested in 2013 and pleaded guilty to fraud in September, saying he was aware his patients did not need chemotherapy.
