$112M fraud case against alligator wrestling doctor lined with threats, exotic dancers

Detroit A doctor accused of orchestrating a $112 million health care fraud is a lying bully who hid millions of dollars in offshore bank accounts while threatening to "break the legs" of one associate and entrapping another with exotic dancers, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors, court records and social-media posts portray Dr. Frank Patino as a conniving crook with lies as big as his biceps, an alligator-wrestling, steroid-buying, frequently shirtless fraudster who spent ill-gotten gains on mixed martial arts fighters and a vanity diet program.

More than $2 million remains missing amid a hunt for money stretching from Metro Detroit to the Cayman Islands.

Patino, 63, of Woodhaven, is a central figure in one of the largest health care fraud schemes in U.S. history who was indicted last month amid a broader nationwide crackdown by federal agents.

2. It would only be fair to give the gator a fighting chance and remove the tape around his jaws.



I have a college classmate who was an OB/GYN and he lost his medical license for over-prescribing steroids (probably for himself and his gym rat buddies). He also turned into a right-wing Islamophobe. I didn't really know him, but he always seemed a bit off.
