TULSA, Okla. – Two more Tulsa doctors have entered into settlement agreements with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for allegedly accepting illegal kickback payments from OK Compounding, LLC, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.

Lam Nguyen, 47, a licensed doctor of osteopathic medicine, agreed to pay the government $124,139.98 for allegedly accepting illegal kickback payments from OK Compounding. In a separate settlement, Hugo Salguero, 44, a licensed medical doctor specializing in pain medicine, agreed to pay the government $228,301.76 for allegedly accepting illegal kickback payments from OK Compounding.

These civil settlements resulted from an investigation into numerous health care providers writing prescriptions for pain creams compounded and sold by OK Compounding in return for payments.

These settlements resolve allegations that Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Salguero had illegal financial relationships with OK Compounding concerning pain creams in 2013.

Since January 2019, seven medical professionals have settled for allegedly receiving kickback payments from the company.
