Former President Donald Trump pardoned several healthcare executives and physicians Jan. 20, his last day in office.
President Trump pardoned 143 individuals on Jan. 20, including former Nashville, Tenn.-based Comprehensive Pain Specialists CEO John Davis, Medpage Today reported Jan. 21. Mr. Davis had the remainder of his 42-month sentence commuted.
He was at the head of a $4.6 million kickback scheme. He was convicted in 2019 on a count of conspiracy to defraud and seven counts of violating the Anti-Kickback Statutes.
The White House issued a statement on Mr. Davis, saying, "Notably, no one suffered financially as a result of his crime and he has no other criminal record."
Mr. Davis is still a defendant in a $50 million lawsuit against Comprehensive Pain Specialists relating to an alleged lab testing fraud scheme.
