Dr. Fata Patients' Families Protest Records Fees at Crittenton

Families of former patients of oncologist Dr. Farid Fata demonstrated outside Crittenton Hospital on Saturday, protesting fees assessed by the hospital for loved ones' medical records.

Fata was arrested in August by federal agents after being accused in a large-scale Medicare billing fraud scheme.

The hospital has maintained that the fee is uniform for all former patients' records, whether or not they had been cared for by Fata. Current patients can retrieve records at no charge.
