Federal agents raid Western Slope doctors’ offices
MONTROSE, Colo. – Federal agents seized patient records from urgent-care clinics in Grand Junction and Montrose and from a doctor’s office in Delta in western Colorado, but didn’t say why.
In a statement, U.S. Attorney Dave Gaouette said the records were seized Wednesday from the medical practices of Dr. Sam Jahani, an internist, and Dr. Eric Anthony Peper, a thoracic surgeon.
Denver-based Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Mike Turner said no arrests have been made. He declined further comment, saying it’s an ongoing investigation.
U.S. attorney spokesman Jeff Dorschner did not immediately return a phone call. No one answered the phone at office numbers listed for Jahani and Peper.
