LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Federal Agents made a visit to a Louisville neighborhood this morning collecting evidence from a doctor's home.  

Agents with the Drug Enforcement Agency, as well as Louisville Metro Police, the Kentucky Attorney General's Office and the Kentucky Department of Insurance were taking items from the home of Dr. George Kudmani in the 14000 block of Landmark Drive in the Lake Forest neighborhood and his office in the 9000 block of Stonestreet Road.

Box after box of what appears to be patient records were taken out of Dr. George Kudmani's office and loaded into unmarked SUVs by police and drug enforcement agents. What they want with those records, no one is saying, but law enforcement was also coming and going from Dr. Kudmani's home on landmark drive in the Lake Forest neighborhood too.

WAVE 3 has confirmed that it was two federal search warrants that got the agents and officers into both locations.

One neighbor said there were detectives in unmarked cars sitting on the street over night. They told them they were doing surveillance, but wouldn't say where or why. By morning, the location was obvious.

Along with LMPD and DEA, a member of the Medicaid Fraud and Abuse unit from Kentucky's Attorney General's office as well as people with the state's Department of Insurance fraud division were also on site.

According to the Kentucky Board of Licensure, Dr. Kudmani has been certified in obstetrics and gynecology since 1980 in Kentucky. He graduated from the University of Damascus in 1971 and has never had any board action taken against him. His office listed is the one agents were taking items from.

Officials said no one has been arrested and Dr. Kudmani is the only person being investigated. Jewish Hospital and Triology Healthcare  both own buildings where Dr. Kudmani has his office, but both said they are not associated with him.

WAVE 3 will continue to follow this case and bring you new details as they become available.
