A Gainesville doctor recently convicted of healthcare fraud could face up to 35 years in federal prison.
Chief U.S. District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn is set to sentence Dr. Mark E. Gibbs, Dr. Laila Hirjee and nurse Tammie Little at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28, at the federal courthouse in Dallas, said Erin Dooley, spokeswoman for the United States Attorney’s Office Northern District of Texas.
Hirjee faces up to 60 years in federal prison and Little faces up to 40 years, according to a news release issued this week from the U.S. Attorney’s Office Northern District of Texas.
On Monday, May 24, a federal jury found Novus Health Services Medical Directors Gibbs and Hirjee, along with Novus RN Little, guilty of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud.
