Dr. Xingjia Cui of Pittsford, who worked at the Canandaigua Veterans Affairs Medical Center, was convicted of billing health insurance companies for services he did not provide to his patients.
Cui, a 56-year old who also had a private practice in Canandaigua, also was ordered to pay $597,823 in restitution by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford, according to a release by the U.S. attorney’s office.
