The Runaway Doctor
Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. founder Barry D. Rooth played a key role in a case involving Dr. Mark Weinberger, M.D., dubbed “The Runaway Doctor” by Vanity Fair. In this highly publicized case, Barry represented over 280 plaintiffs against Weinberger, who was accused of performing hundreds of unnecessary surgeries for financial gain. In 2004, Weinberger disappeared without a trace. It was 5 years before he was found, living in the Alps near Courmayeur, Italy. Extradited to the United States, he plead guilty to 22 counts of healthcare fraud. Barry secured a global settlement for his clients from the Indiana Patient’s Compensation Fund.
