An ongoing federal investigation of a New Jersey medical laboratory has netted guilty pleas from more than two dozen doctors, the latest Tuesday from a physician who admitted taking cash bribes from lab employees.
Bret Ostrager, 50, a Woodbury, New York, resident with practices in Nassau County, pleaded guilty to three counts in an indictment charging him with conspiracy.
Ostrager admitted getting monthly cash bribes of roughly $3,300 from lab employees and associates of Parsippany-based Biodiagnostic Laboratory Services. He also periodically solicited and received several meals and tickets to entertainment and sporting events that cost thousands of dollars.
