Valley Doctor Arrested By FBI

Local News

A valley doctor is behind bars accused of fraud and laundering money internationally.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now looking for other possible victims in this case.

Dr. Jorge Zamora-Quezada is charged for his role in a $240 million healthcare fraud and international money laundering scheme. The physician faces five counts of health care fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, and another count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Stephen Kam, Assistant Special Agent in Charge says, “Dr. Zamora-Quezada as detailed in the indictment is alleged to have falsely diagnosed patients with multiple diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, as he operated his clinics between the years 2000 and 2018. What the FBI would like to do is attempt to identify victims of his crime. If you saw Dr. Zamora, you should contact the FBI.”

The FBI says Dr. Zamora-Quezada saw up to 10,000 patients a year at his clinics in Brownsville, Edinburg, and San Antonio. Any patients who may have been victims are encouraged to call 1-833-432-4873.
