How do you see 50 patients a day? Let your administrative assistant see some of them:
Waterbury physician Juan Fica hired a man 10 years ago to help around his office by seeing patients, diagnosing illnesses and writing prescriptions.
The problem was the man Fica hired, Elie Nakouzi, was not a licensed physician. Fica also billed insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid for work Nakouzi did, but fraudulently indicated that he performed the work.
