Eye Doc’s Lawyer Calls Office Raid ‘Retaliation’


Federal agents raided West Palm Beach eye doctor Salomon Melgen’s office for the second time this year, the Palm Beach Post reports. For four years, Melgen has been in a dispute with the federal government over allegations he was overpaid millions of dollars by Medicare. His attorney says Tuesday’s raid is payback for a lawsuit the doctor filed against U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
