Dr. Dorothy Ogundu
QUEENS, NY (NEW YORK POST) -- A Queens doctor revealed by The Post to be running a sham clinic has finally lost her medical license.
Dr. Dorothy Ogundu was convicted of 29 felony counts in October 2015 for stealing about $300,000 in taxpayer grant money meant for her nonprofit Angeldocs charity and its health and education center in Holliswood. She was accused of using the money to pay mortgages on buildings she owned and to buy and ship cars to her native Nigeria.
The state Attorney General’s office began probing Ogundu after The Post reported in 2012 that Angeldocs was collecting government grants but her purported clinic was padlocked and did not appear to treat anyone.
Ogundu served a year in state prison and was released in January. A state Board for Professional Medical Conduct committee voted in June to suspend her medical license for one year, retroactive to Jan. 19, 2017, meaning she could have soon started to practice again. But a review board this month overturned that decision and yanked Ogundu’s license.
The board found that Ogundu’s “lack of integrity demonstrates her unfitness to practice medicine in New York.”
Ogundu did not return a request for comment.
