The Mega-Mansion of Indicted Town & Country Doctor Abid Nasir
|Abid Nisar's 15,000-square-foot mansion is appraised at more than $2 million.|
According to a federal indictment, Nisar began purchasing unregulated drugs for his cancer patients in 2010 at steep discounts compared to FDA-approved medicine. Many of the drugs were manufactured in overseas factories without FDA oversight and often arrived stateside with foreign-language packaging. Nisar (with offices in Florissant, Granite City and East St. Louis) then billed Medicaid and Medicare for reimbursement for the drugs he gave patients, failing to mention to either agency the illegal source of his medicine.
So, why would a doctor living in the $2 million mansion above need to orchestrate such a scheme?
Evidently, Nisar just learned that the hard way.
Nisar built his Town & Country manse in 2007, according to property records. The home boasts six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
