Suspicious medical outfit makes cold calls and house calls to seniors

Cold calls.  Visits to the homes of senior citizens.   Traveling doctors and an entire office filled with telemarketers.  I've never seen a medical operation like this one.

I started working on this story in June and my investigation took me all over the state.  When I tried to talk to the doctors behind it, they just ran.

It's a business that claims to send out doctors to make house calls on the elderly.  I found some of their patients, but they say the only doctoring going on was the extraction of their Medicare numbers.

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away.  In this case, a camera a day keeps these docs on the run.  Watch me give them a dose of my medicine in this Problem Solver investigation.
