London heart doctor surrenders medical license

LONDON, Ky. (WYMT)- A London doctor agreed to forfeit his medical license for five years this week.

According to a Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure document, former Saint Joseph London cardiologist Sandesh Rajaram Patil pleaded guilty to federal health care fraud in June.

He is accused of submitting a claim for an unneeded heart stint procedure to receive payment.

Saint Joseph London officials say Patil has not practiced at the hospital since 2010 and is no longer employed there.
