Patients 'didn't question' records from physical therapist accused of fraud

Posted: Updated:

Patients unaware of trouble surrounding the mid-Michigan physical therapist accused of sex crimes with a minor and fraud.

Barbara Geiger is currently receiving care at Vijay Kumar’s West Branch location. She's on Medicare and says she didn't suspect anything was amiss.

"I know they set up the amount I was allowed,” Geiger said. “And I know they set up three times a week. And I didn't question it."

But now she’s concerned after authorities, including state and federal government agencies, have seized Kumar’s records and shut down all five of his offices alleging he took false payments from insurance companies and Medicare.

Geiger said she always checks her records, and hasn’t seen anything awry yet.

"It just kind of takes me back you know you hear about these things but to actually encounter something," Geiger said.
