I don't know the facts in this case, but have ben a patient of his for many years. and has been a great Doctor. I also know of many others he has helped and cared for. again I dont know the facts but, I can't see him doing this. he certainly hasn't spent that extra money on his office furnishings or even buying the building his office is in (the building that was for sale for many, many years (all while he was making all this extra money) until Rob Julian bought it late last year). I just wonder (and again I don't know all the facts), that maybe some office help was tickling the books. we stories like that all the time( just recently with Nackley insurance).

there are many reasons why healh care costs are up. I've been saying for years they should pass that tort reform they always talk about but never do (so when people that spill hot coffee on themselves they can't sue because the coffee was hot). that would lower malpractice insurance for Doctors, Hospitals, drug makers, and medical equipment manufactures. if all of them had there costs lowered it should lower our costs

I heard someone in his office was cooking his books and over billing for patients he did not see. Poor guy. But we don't know the whole story yet. They will track to see where those Medicare checks were deposited.
maybe typo

a friend of mine has gone to him for years. and when they lost their job (and insurance) Dr. Kachare still took care of them and many times didn't charge them anything. even gave them free drug samples cause he knew they couldn't afford to pay for them.

I was talking with another friend who said something like this happened to their Doctor a while ago. and it ended up being the billing clerk was putting in the wrong codes. lets hope thats the case here. since they are saying the codes used would have taken a while to preform and couldn't of all been done in a day. they are not saying he didn't actually see the patents he said he did.

I am in shock, really. Must be an error of some kind. The new computer system maybe. Great guy, great Doc. Wife is a bitch, but not his fault.

The greedy doctors and dentist are killing the health insurance business. That's why rates are going up. Its not the insurance companies that want to raise your rates soley, its because the doctors charge so much and the insurance company has to raise rates to correct the payout. That's why doctors won't take Medicare patients because there is a set rate of payout.were forced to buy an extra policy to cover the doctor bill. What justifies a doctor to make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year off peoples illness and I have to donate for a sick person dying of cancer and the greedy medical field donates nothing.

He pled not guilty to the charges in Federal Court. It can not be his new computer system; it is for charges that are older dates of service. The Federal charges accuse him of billing for services that could not be performed in a 24 hour period (CPT codes have time frames attached and he billed for 30+ hours of charges on several dates). It does not matter if someone in his office did it as he is responsible for their actions, I am pretty sure he was aware if what was being billed out. Yes, he is always working. Not sure if he really sleeps. But the fact is enough is enough .

All I know is that when my wife was in the hospital, Dr Kachare came in and asked a few questions and left within 5 minutes. He sent us a bill for $438.00. This should not be allowed, he did nothing for that money.
Any dr who asks any patient a question in their room can bill for a consult.

This is gods honest truth My mom was a patient at st Es Her roommate who was very sick non responsive. I witnessed dr Katchare come in sit in chair next to her and talk to her as if she could respond. The poor lady had gangrene in her leg and was telling her she should have it cut off There was no family present. This lady could not respond She wasn't able too. I can only imagine what he charged her . How could you even want to cut off a leg to a 90 year old woman who was obviously dying anyways? Who would do that ?
