Former Tennessee Doctor Arrested in New York Following Joint Investigation


Former Tennessee Doctor Arrested in New York Following Joint Investigation
TBI/Susan Niland Friday February 27, 2015

Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations Medicaid Fraud Control Unit led a multi-agency investigation that has resulted in the arrest of a former Fentress County medical doctor. Authorities began investigating Vijaya Patibandla in August 2009. At that time, Patibandla was a medical doctor with a practice in Jamestown. A large percentage of Patibandlas patients were TennCare recipients. The TBI says Agents found that from November 2007 through December 2010, Patibandla was writing illegal prescriptions for controlled substances and was charging TennCare for patients visits to get those prescriptions. Patibandla subsequently closed his Fentress County practice and moved to New York, where he has an active medical license. He voluntarily surrendered his Tennessee medical license in 2012. On December 11, 2014, a Fentress County Grand Jury returned indictments against Vijaya Patibandla, charging the 68-year-old with 40 counts of TennCare Fraud and two counts of Theft of Property. On Thursday, Patibandla was arrested at his home in Valley Stream, New York. He will be held on a $150,000 bond pending extradition to Tennessee.
