LAS VEGAS -- The recent arrest of a doctor has resulted in former patients contacting the I-Team to find out what happened to their medical records.
For years, the I-Team has tracked down medical records that disappear when doctors stopped practicing. It's not often that a doctor unexpectedly dies or is arrested. But when it happens, it means patient records fall between the cracks, where state regulators don't look.
Dr. Vinay Bararia was arrested twice. First, this summer, for allegedly selling painkilling drugs from a hospital parking lot. Bararia was arrested the second time for violating his release conditions while awaiting trial.
Jeri Sobarnia, a former patient of the doctor, said she doesn't have her medical records.
"My whole family has gone to that doctor. We adored him. We liked his care. It'd be nice to have the records for future things. You never know what's going to happen," Sobarnia said.
Initially, the state medical board told the I-Team they didn't know where Dr. Bararia's records were. The I-Team was able to track the records down to Bararia's former business partner, Dr. William Maranon. His office staff said they only took the records as a favor and have no legal obligation to do so.
This isn't the first time patient records have disappeared. In 2009, Dr. Edna Makabenta was murdered in her office. The records were destroyed leaving cancer patients without lifesaving information.
State senator and doctor, Joe Hardy, is expected to push his idea to make doctors write a will explaining where patients records go if they aren't available. Hardy, a Republican, might also press for more oversight by the medical board.
"This is going to be a bipartisan effort," he said. "We're going to have people that recognize there's a problem and we'll get something done, both with the information and where the record is."
Sobarnia said she is grateful for any help in finding her medical records.
"I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who have no clue where their records are," she said.
Only five of Bararia's former patients have picked up their medical records. Hundreds of patient medical records remain.
Former patients of Bararia's may call Dr. William Maranon's office at 702-889-9129 and ask for office manager Miller Sharp.
