ELIZABETH - Five people involved with a doctor's office in Elizabeth are accused of Medicare fraud.

Dr. Yousuf Masood and his wife were arrested early yesterday morning by DEA and FBI agents at their home in Somerset County.

Hours later, agents went to the doctor's office and arrested three alleged unlicensed doctors and shut the business down.

The FBI claims Dr. Masood's office wrote more prescriptions than any other doctor's office in New Jersey. The FBI also says that the doctor's office swindled Medicare out of almost $2 million.
