Were you or a loved one a patient of Dr. Javaid Perwaiz?
On November 9, 2020, former Chesapeake, Virginia doctor Javaid Perwaiz was convicted of healthcare fraud, including performing unnecessary hysterectomies and other surgeries.
Dr. Javaid Perwaiz has been found guilty of performing numerous surgeries and procedures on women, including nonconsensual hysterectomies, resulting in complications such as kidney failure, abdominal pain, nerve damage, and sterilization. He currently faces a maximum penalty of 465 years in prison.
More than fifty victims have come forward with tragic stories after having been a patient of Perwaiz. Each time, Perwaiz profited while these victims suffered. Previous patients cited that Perwaiz seemed trustworthy due to his extensive career in the medical field, only to have that trust broken beyond repair.
Dr. Perwaiz has received felony charges for insurance fraud intended to “support his lavish lifestyle.” His medical license in Virginia expired in March 2020. Officials are concerned that there are additional victims that have not yet been identified and are therefore asking other patients who may have been a victim of medical malpractice by Dr. Perwaiz to come forward.
