Title: Fake Doctor Gerald Barnes – Doctor of Death
Series: American Greed (Radioplay)
For twenty years MD Gerald Barnbaum posed as a medical doctor, but he was not real doctor.
Originally trained as a pharmacist, Barnbaum had his license revoked in the aftermath of Medicaid fraud charges in 1971. He moved to California in 1976, and after having legally changed his last name to Barnes, stole the identity of a licensed medical doctor in Stockton, Gerald Barnes, and worked steadily as a physician in the Los Angeles and Southern California region for the next three years.
