DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Oakland County oncologist facing federal charges for defrauding the Medicare system is one of the highest earning physicians in the U.S. according to a federal report. Dr. Farid Fata was among the top of the 880-thousand medical providers on the list released Wednesday.

In 2012 Fata billed Medicare ten-million dollars and earned over three-million dollars. He is accused of misdiagnosing patients with cancer and ordering chemotherapy treatments that were not necessary in order to bill Medicare.
