(San Francisco Chronicle) A self-employed East Bay doctor who met with clients at places like Burger King, Home of Chicken and Waffles and Starbucks has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that she sold prescriptions for controlled substances without confirming that patients needed them.
Dr. Toni Daniels, 62, of Berkeley was arrested Thursday night on an indictment unsealed in U.S. District Court in Oakland. It accuses her of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, conspiracy to distribute and dispense controlled substances, distribution of controlled substances and failing to file a tax return.
From 2010 to 2011, Daniels met with customers at restaurants and other establishments such as Dick’s Donuts and Whole Foods Market, selling them oxycodone and hydrocodone in exchange for cash, prosecutors said. She failed to conduct medical exams or obtain thorough medical histories, authorities said.
