JACKSON, Miss. — A cancer doctor stood shackled before a federal judge Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to charges of stealing millions of dollars from Medicaid and Medicare by diluting chemotherapy drugs and reusing old needles on multiple patients.

Dr. Meera Sachdeva, the 50-year-old founder of Rose Cancer Center in Summit, said little other than to answer the judge’s questions during the brief hearing in U.S. District Court in Jackson.

If you or a Family Member were treated by Dr. Meera Sachdeva, in Summit, MS please call our office. There is reason to believe that many of her patients were subjected to medical treatment that was negligent and amounts to Medical Malpractice. John D. Giddens P.A. would be glad to speak with you at 601-355-2022. If a 601 number is long distance for you, feel free to dial our toll-free number 1-888-335-2022. The call is free.

The types of dangers presented to patients who have had their chemotherapy drugs diluted. The most extreme form of treatment for cancer is chemotherapy, and the thought that those patients who are undergoing this life-saving treatment are being shortchanged and injured because a doctor is selling their chemotherapy treatment to another is unconscionable.

Also the thought that these same patients are being administered drugs by their doctor with a shared needle. HIV and Hepatitis B & C are blood borne and could be transferred from patient to patient by sharing needles. This risk of reusing needles is needless and shocking given that hypodermic needles can be obtained for less than a dollar.

Almost as troubling as sharing needles and the dilution of cancer medications at Rose Cancer Center is the fact that there may be other types of medical negligence and malpractice at Rose Cancer Center that we are still unaware of. For this reason we urge you that if you or a family member treated at Rose Cancer Center that you contact us at 601-355-2022. If a 601 number is long distance for you, feel free to dial our toll-free number 1-888-335-2022. The call is free.
