Earlier this morning, Dr. Dipak Desai was taken into custody. Desai will be booked into Clark County Detention Center. It was decided that he was not mentally competent to stand trial and he will eventually go to a mental hospital in Reno for more evaluation.

Desai is the doctor at the center of the Las Vegas hepatitis scare. About 50,000 valley residents had to get tested for hepatitis C after it was learned he had reused needles and vials. 110 people were infected with the disease.

    I have been figting with Dr. Akshay Desai and his criminal insurance company called Universal Health Care Inc of St. Petersburg, Florida for 3 years now
    . His company left me to almost lose my leg and die throught post claims underwriting. Google: domestic terrorism, gary’s blog to see what this Desai put me and many others through in their obscene quest for profits over the health of those they are supposed to take care of. Gary
