Rochester, NY -- There's a guilty plea in a scheme to defraud the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Rochester.
Federal prosecutors say Doron Feldman of Williamsville pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud. Feldman was an anesthesiologist with a Buffalo company that provided anesthesia services to surgery patients at Strong Memorial Hospital and other area hospitals. Feldman received more than $630,000 from nearly $1.5 million dollars in fraudulent bills submitted to the Department and approved by the department's program administrator, Debra Bulter.
Bulter was convicted of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering and is awaiting sentencing.
Sentencing for Feldman is set for September 24.
