  • Summary: Dr Melchias Njingulula Mukendi; License # 187870

    Nature of Complaint:

    The Physician has been charged with professional misconduct relating the Physician's care and treatment of five patients.

    The Physician ordered excessive testing, treatment or use of treatment facilities that were not warranted by the patients conditions. He refered patients for consultations and treatment by physical therapists, chiropractors and psychologists when they were not medically necesssary.

    The Physician received of percentage of the net receivables at the clinic. The more billable tests and treatment ordered, the greater his compensation. Although the Physician stated he was under pressure to order the testing, he allowed the non-physician owners to dictate which medical tests and treatments his patients received, thus delagating his professional responsibilities to persons that he knew were not qualified to perform these responsibilities.

    The Board has Revoked the Physician's license and issued a Fine of $50,000.00.

    March 10, 2008-Determination and Order # 07-227
