LOUISVILE, Ky. (WDRB) - Dr. George Kudmani, a retired Louisville doctor indicted on 14 federal charges including money laundering, healthcare fraud and dishing out pain pills, has surrendered to authorities.
Following Dr. Kudmani's indictment last week, dozens of former patients have come forward with stories about botched surgeries and allegations that the doctor tried to give them pain medication.
The doctor made a statement outside federal court today. He says the women who have been coming forward with complaints will end up actually testifying to support him when the case goes to trial.
But the women tell a very different story.
One woman said, "My main purpose is to make him pay for what he did to me. Nobody knows what he did to me and its bad."
Dr. Kudmani was arraigned this afternoon and entered a plea of not guilty on all counts.
He was ordered to report to probation, pay a $25,000 bond, surrender his passport, and agree to not practice medicine through the duration of his scheduled trial Feb. 4.
The doctor answered questions about cash transactions in his office and how his wife financed a brand new car. The indictment says he purchased it with illegal drug money.
