In a decisive early victory in court, Dr. Elkholy and the Precision Pain & Spine Institute secured the dismissal of all but one of Geico’s claims against them, including Geico’s RICO and common law fraud claims, and forced Geico to institute these claims in arbitration. Dr. Elkholy and the Precision Team are confident that they will succeed in obtaining a dismissal of the claims referred to arbitration and ultimately obtain a dismissal of the one claim remaining in court.
Throughout this process, Dr. Elkholy and the Precision Team have strongly denied Geico’s allegations and vigorously defended themselves, which culminated in the above victory. Not only do Dr. Elkholy and the Precision Team not engage in fraud; instead, they serve an essential role in providing treatment to injured persons in the State of New Jersey who are entitled to coverage for their injuries under their Personal Injury Protection plan. Dr. Elkholy’s victory helps ensure that insurance carriers do not seek relief in an improper legal forum. Unlike many other similarly situated providers, Dr. Elkholy and the Precision Team did not capitulate to Geico’s unreasonable demands; rather, they elected to challenge and will continue to vigorously challenge Geico’s allegations in order to vindicate themselves and clear their reputation.
