Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal and the Division of Consumer Affairs today announced the State Board of Medical Examiners (“Board”) has taken disciplinary action against two doctors who pleaded guilty to federal charges that they defrauded Medicare and other healthcare insurers out of almost $2 million combined.

Officials said Mr. Robert Claude McGrath, 69, a resident of Mays Landing, who employed unqualified individuals in his practice to provide physical therapy to patients and collected $890,000 in payments that he was not entitled to, agreed to a permanent revocation of his medical license.

According to officials, Mr. Michael E. Goldis, 46, of Mount Laurel, signed prescriptions for individuals with whom he did not have a doctor-patient relationship, and billed health insurance providers for unnecessary costly compounded medications.
