NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBS4) – A South Florida chiropractor is answering to charges she treated patients for services they didn’t need, and pocketed the insurance money.
Eileen Dvorkin, 61, was arrested Thursday on one count each of patient brokering, insurance fraud and organized scheme to defraud.
Police allege since 2009 Dvorken paid “runners” to find patients for her clinic, Accident Injury and Family Health Care located at 17230 West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach.
The “runner” would bring people in to make false claims of injuries from staged auto accidents. Authorities say Dvorken treated the alleged patients for the false symptoms and fraudulently billed the insurance company for treatment costs.
Dvorken’s employees at the clinic were reportedly unaware of her actions.
After her arrest, Dvorken bonded out of jail and has since returned to work at the clinic.
