BURR RIDGE – Dr. Nalini Ahluwalia of Burr Ridge has been charged with one count of violating the anti-kickback law for allegedly receiving $1,000 in exchange for referring two patients to a home health care agency in August 2012.
Ahluwalia, 58, was charged in a complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court. She will be ordered to appear in court on a date to be determined.
