Memo: LI doctor accused of fraud practicing at hospital
A Long Beach doctor arrested in an investigation into a health care fraud case last month has allegedly been reinstated to practice at Long Island Medical Center.
News 12 Long Island obtained an internal memo from the hospital that advises staff Dr. Devi Reddy's hospital privileges have been reinstated, though he is not permitted to order controlled substances without the knowledge of other physicians.
Officials say an undercover investigation back on April 14 discovered Reddy had been selling prescriptions for OxyContin and Percocet since December 2008.
Some residents say Reddy shouldn't be allowed to practice while his case is still active. Others believe he should return to work unless he's found guilty.
