Posted: Updated:

A Hudson Valley eye doctor is accused of stealing millions of dollars from patients and health care providers. 

Dr. Ameet Goyal has been indicted on health care fraud and other charges.

Authorities say the ophthalmologist allegedly billed customers and insurance companies for surgeries he never performed from 2010 to 2017.

Investigators say he also falsified patient medical records and pressured other employees in his practice to participate in the scheme.

Dr. Goyal also had offices in Mount Kisco, Wappingers Falls and Connecticut.
