Feds Raid Yonkers Medical Building

YONKERS –  The FBI and other federal authorities are searching the Northway Medical Center at 944 N. Broadway in Yonkers this morning.

The offices there include those of Dr. Rohan L Wijetilaka, a cardiologist whose license to practice medicine was rovoked earlier this month after a state panel found him guilty of multiple counts of gross incompetence, negligence, performing unwarranted tests and failing to keep records. He was also fined $50,000.

Authorities at the scene would not confirm if they were targeting Wijetilaka.

Prakash Makhi, 50, of Cortlandt Manor, who works in the building, said he was approached at 7 a.m. by a man who said he had a search warrant. The man asked him if he could be let into the building. He estimated about 15 to 20 investigators were on the scene.

In addition to the FBI, officials from the federal Office of Inspector General Health and Human Services and Yonkers police were at the building this morning.
