Moore Law Firm is proud to announce that we are standing up for the victims of Dr. Zamora-Quezada as we seek to help others who may have also been victims of Dr. Zamora’s medical abuse.
Dr. Zamora made headlines last month as a federal grand jury charged Dr. Zamora with 1 count of Conspiracy to Commit Health Care Fraud, 5 counts of Health Care Fraud, and 1 count of Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering. The grand jury alleges that Dr. Zamora, in all, billed health care benefit programs $250 million in fraudulent claims, pocketing nearly $50 million for himself.
Enveloped in these charges were vulnerable victims of Dr. Zamora, which included the disabled and the elderly, who were falsely diagnosed with degenerative diseases and injected with extremely potent drugs such as chemotherapy.
“We’re here to send a message to not only Dr. Zamora, but other doctors who prey on vulnerable victims: I assure you that there will be consequences for your egregious actions,” said attorney J. Michael Moore. “Right now, we’re asking for victims of Dr. Zamora’s abuse to please come forward. We’re here to help in any way the courts will allow us.”
Dr. Zamora: A History of Patient Abuse
Shortly after a federal jury found Dr. Zamora guilty of sexual harassment and ordered to pay tens of thousands in damages to his victims, a patient filed a complaint to the Texas Medical Board against Dr. Zamora on October 2008, alleging that Dr. Zamora ordered unnecessary testing and prescribed a drug that was “non-therapeutic in the manner prescribed” and “inconsistent with public health and welfare.”
A year later, the Texas Medical Board’s investigation confirmed the patient’s complaint and also revealed that Dr. Zamora had falsely diagnosed a number of patients. In their findings, they stated that Dr. Zamora treated some patients for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis when they only demonstrated osteopenia, treated a number of patients for inflammatory arthritis or osteoporosis when they only demonstrated osteoarthritis, and treated a number of patients for rheumatoid arthritis when they only demonstrated osteoarthritis.
For their investigation, the Texas Medical Board issued Dr. Zamora a public reprimand that remains on his record today.
As we see from the grand jury’s charges, these same malicious practices stemmed much deeper and spanned a greater timeline than what investigators from the Texas Medical Board were able to uncover.
