QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM HER PATIENTS
How many patients were hurt by Dr. Shang ?
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, SHANG billed some 164 visits or "encounters" for patients with the diagnosis code of the highly particular type of eye viral infection called Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis from 2/1/11 to 7/1/12.
Since Medicare only accounts for less than 30-50% of a typical practice, the number of infected patient encounters at SHANG'S are much, much higher than 164 visits.
Did SHANG feel bad or remorseful?
Publicly available Superior Court documents show that Shang concealed the true source of the infection from her patients and multiple public entities and administrative groups. Shang further tried to suppressed the infection information from her patients and tampered with witnesses so as to conceal her misconduct.
Who is Dr. SHANG?
Shang is a Taiwanese Ophthalmologist.
Is SHANG allowed to still see patients?
How much did Medicare reimburse SHANG for these eye infections?
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, SHANG billed and received enrichment of nearly $20,000 from CMS just for these Medicare beneficiaries who had the exact same diagnosis code of the highly particular type of eye viral infection from 2/1/11 to 7/1/12.
