Temporary Suspension of Dr. Henry Sardar’s
Authorization to Treat Injured Workers
Effective April 22, 2015

Authorization No. 242950-4W

Date: April 23, 2015

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Henry Sardar’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective April 22, 2015. Dr. Sardar's known business addresses are 2362 East 4th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11223; 2604 Third Avenue, Bronx, NY 10454; 4377 Bronx Boulevard, Bronx, NY 10466; 1396 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11237; 601 West 163rd Street, First Floor, New York, NY 10032; and 9211 Roosevelt Avenue, Queens, NY 11372.

The Chair’s designee’s investigation revealed that the Brooklyn District Attorney, United States Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, New York City Human Resources Administration and the New York State Acting Medicaid Inspector General named Dr. Henry Sardar in a multiple count indictment, alleging that between approximately October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2014, Dr. Henry Sardar was involved in the fraudulent operation of medical clinics and/or the submission of fraudulent claims to Medicaid, Medicaid – managed health care organizations, and Medicare by offering low income individuals footwear, such as sneakers, shoes and boots, in exchange for the performance of medically unnecessary tests and procedures amounting to more than $6.9 million. The indictment alleges felony and misdemeanor charges against Dr. Henry Sardar, including, but not limited to, Enterprise Corruption, Money Laundering in the First Degree, Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree, Health Care Fraud in the First Degree, Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, Grand Larceny, Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, Petit Larceny, and Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree.

Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Sardar may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Sardar is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Sardar for services rendered prior to April 22, 2015, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Sardar for services rendered prior to April 22, 2015, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorization.

This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
