FBI Serve Search Warrant at Texoma Spine Center - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Falls Doctor's Office Reopens Following FBI Raid

Posted: Updated:

A Wichita Falls doctor's office that was the focus of an FBI raid Thursday reopened Friday morning. In our calls to the Texoma Pain and Spine Center, assistants who answered the phone told us Dr. Sanjoy Sundaresan was not in but that they expected him back the week after Easter.

Dr. Sundaresan, MD, is a neurosurgeon licensed in Texas since 1996.

The FBI served a search warrant on his office Thursday.

Newschannel 6 crews were on the scene when Wichita Falls police and FBI began loading more than a dozen boxes into a van from the office in the 1500 block of 10th street.

We contacted the US Attorney's Office in Dallas for additional information on the case. They told us since no public records were available they would have no comment at this time.

Patients were turned away at the center and it was closed for the day Thursday. Agents also questioned patients who were at the clinic. Dr. Sundaresan's staff was also sent home.

Patient Loretta Carr talked to us after an FBI Agent spoke with her, "He was explaining to me about this that's going on here about all the different agencies and stuff, and the investigation and all that stuff and asked me about what type of information that I know of and so I'm just a patient and I don't have any information. He's been my doctor for a long long long time."

Newschannel 6 learned that Dr. Sundaresan has been sanctioned by the State of Texas twice for inaccurate record keeping. He was sanctioned in 2003 and again in 2006. Both times he was required to have his record keeping monitored and was fined $5,000 each occurrence. It is not clear at this time if those prior inaccurate record keeping sanctions have anything to do with the search warrant executed on Thursday.

Stay with Newschannel 6 for the latest on this case. We will continue to follow it closely.
