Suspended doctor disputes DOH claims


The attorney for a Bonita Springs doctor whose license was suspended last week after a patient's death now says a different doctor was treating the patient and the patient had not received a stem cell treatment.

Dr. Zannos Grekos is under investigation by the Lee County Sheriff's Office, however no criminal charges have been filed against him.

Dr. Grekos' attorney issued a one page statement to our newsroom that says the patient died during a different procedure performed by a different doctor.[Click here to read the statement.]

The attorney did not identify the doctor on the statement, but says the other doctor was performing liposuction on THE MAN, not stem cell treatment.

The family of 77 year old Richard Poling of Indiana said he was being treated for pulmonary fibrosis.

The Department of Health's Emergency Suspension Order stated Poling died from cardiac arrest while at Grekos' office.

Dr Grekos' attorney states that the medical examiner's office has not provided a report linking the patient's death to stem cell treatment.

We did reach out to the Department of Heath for comment, but have not heard back from them yet.

We also reached out to Poling's sister who lives in Bonita Springs. She is respecting her family's wishes and is not speaking to the media.
