A Phoenixville doctor has been charged with federal tax fraud for allegedly pocketing millions he earned from online prescription sales but never reported as income.
In an indictment unsealed Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Philadelphia said Elias Karkalas earned about $2.5 million from prescriptions to patients he never met or examined.
Karkalas, 64, a primary-care doctor, operates Upper Merion Family Practice in King of Prussia. No attorney was listed for his case, and calls to his practice were not returned Thursday. He was arrested Wednesday, prosecutors said.
