Law360 quotes Phillips & Cohen partner Colette Matzzie in its story about the $7.5 million settlement of her clients’ qui tam case against a number of pain management clinics and their physician owner.
Lakshmi Anu Doddapaneni and Christian Reyes were the former employees who initially filed the lawsuit in 2018, but the case was just unsealed after the federal government decided to partially intervene in the case, court records showed.
“Our clients were very concerned about the high number of procedures that the clinics were recommending and performing,” said Colette Matzzie, an attorney for Doddapaneni and Reyes, in a statement to Law360 on Wednesday. “Ms. Doddapaneni and Mr. Reyes cared a great deal about the patients, many of whom suffer from chronic pain.”
