DeSOTO, Texas - Dr. Jacques Roy is accused of bilking the government out of $350 million. He was arrested last month.
But a woman has now come forward saying she was one of his patients and claims he was trading sex for prescription drugs.
"I get about eight Xanax," she said. "I take and swallow them down before he comes in, because I know what I'm in for."
For the six months before his arrest she says she was a patient of Roy. She claims he would write her prescriptions for drugs in exchange, he would have her do things that she has trouble talking about.
She asked we protect her identity.
"He said, 'Maybe we can work out a little something,' and I said, 'Really?' And he said, 'Yeah,' and that's when he unzipped his pants."
She showed News 8 dozens of calls and text messages from him including one from Valentine's Day that said, “Be my Valentine, Darling."
"I said, 'You are my doctor. It feels wrong for me,' and I said, 'What do I call you? Do I call you doctor or Roy?'"
She said initially she needed home health care, because she'd had gastric bypass surgery and couldn't care for herself. She said Dr. Roy showed up at her apartment after the first visit and would show up three or four times a week, even while other family members were around.
"He wouldn't stop coming over, and I'd say, 'please go' and 'tell him I’m gone.' 'Tell him I'm in the shower.' He would sit out there and wait with his driver until I got out of the shower," she told News 8.
His attorney told us that this behavior would be inconsistent with how Roy conducted his practice. That there would have been checks and balances to prevent this sort of thing.
But in 1999, Dr. Roy was having an affair with a patient and writing her prescriptions for Xanax and Hydrocodone. She died in a one-car crash with elevated levels of drugs in her blood.
Her family sued and won. The medical board put him on probation for five years.
"You know, you feel kind of nasty, and every time you think about it, you feel like it's repeatedly still happening," the woman said.
The patient told us Roy talked about the FBI being after him, but was still shocked to learn he had been arrested for the largest Medicare fraud rip-off in the history of the U.S.
