Doctor Falsely Diagnosed Children With Cancer To Scare Parents Into Paying For Private Treatments

A decision whether his practice as a doctor is impaired – currently ongoing.

A pediatrician has falsely diagnosed children with cancer in a bid to scare parents into purchasing private treatments from him.

The NHS doctor, identified as Dr. Mina Chowdhury had firstly told a mom that her daughter had a stomach tumor that could spread If left untreated and refused to refer her for NHS treatment.

Accordingly, the doctor also gave two other children fake diagnoses and recommended scans and tests in his struggling Glasgow firm, Meras Healthcare.

According to Watchdog ruled, Dr. Chowdhury at the NHS Forth Valley is the managing director of the aforementioned private healthcare and his actions were dishonest and financially inspired.

In particular, a mother-of-one of his patient identified as Parent A revealed in a hearing in October that Dr. Chowdhury requested her child leave the room before saying: ‘We are going to have a detailed conversation that all parents dread. We are talking about the C term.’

Parent A added: ‘I was shocked that my daughter had cancer. It’s something that I had to be dealt with straight away. So, when I asked him to refer me back to the NHS, he totally refused. Revealing they won’t stick by him, I didn’t think it was an option to get tests done. I believed that she was ill and I didn’t question him.’

But on visiting A&E medics, Parent A couldn’t, however, find any signs of cancer earlier diagnosed by Dr. Chowdhury. On the other hand, Dr. Chowdhury denied diagnosing Parent A daughter with Cancer, but acknowledged, he said it was a low possibility.

The Watchdog, however, ruled that Dr. Chowdhury didn’t refer child patients to the local NHS Pediatric oncology department as he told the parents they would face long waiting times within the NHS.

Working for the NHS in Forth Valley, Dr. Chowdhury’s allegations relate to a private work carried out between March and August 2017.
