Five New York doctors have been charged for prescribing millions of highly-addictive oxycodone pills to patients without examining them.

 

Drs Carl Anderson, Dante Cubangbang, Nkanga Nkanga, Anthony Pietropinto and  Nadem Sayegh have been accused of running an illegal prescription drug mill that resulted in multiple deaths and several overdoses.

 

According to Manhattan federal prosecutors, the physicians often dished out pills under other people’s names and without physically examining them or seeing them.

 

In return, many of them received cash payments or luxury gifts such as alcohol, dinners and all-expenses paid vacations.
