FRANKFORT, Ky. — A federal jury has found a Pikeville doctor innocent of health care fraud.

Dr. Sai Gutti was found not guilty of all charges during his trial in Frankfort on Wednesday.

Gutti was indicted on eight counts of health care fraud in April 2019. He had been accused of billing Medicare and Medicaid for medically unnecessary urine tests.

The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure suspended Gutti’s license to practice medicine shortly after his indictment. The suspension order is still currently in effect, but it does provide him with the opportunity to be reinstated now that his case has been resolved.
