Lionetti, co-worker sentenced in tax case

Staff Writer

CAMDEN -- A Hammonton doctor was sentenced recently to 41 months in
federal prison after his conviction last year on income tax evasion

Anthony Lionetti, 55, will also face three years of supervised release
following his prison sentence and will be responsible for $246,000 in
restitution, according to Greg Reinert, a spokesman with the U.S.
Attorney's Office.

Lionetti was sentenced by U.S. District Court judge Robert Kugler
during proceedings on May 31, Reinert said.

Lionetti was the president of the Lyme Disease Treatment Center and
Tick Borne Disease Group in Hammonton and Phillipsburg.

Lionetti did not file tax returns for 1999, 2000 or 2001.

He had faced upwards of five years in prison for each of the three
years he did not file a return.

In addition, Donald DuBeck of Shamong, who served as the vice
president and office manager of Lionetti's firms, was sentenced by
Judge Kugler to 27 months in federal prison after pleading guilty last
year to income tax evasion.

In addition to his prison sentence, DuBeck was also sentenced to three
years probation following his release. He was also fined $3,000 and
ordered to pay $65,804 in restitution.

As part of his plea, DuBeck admitted to failing to account for and pay
over approximately $395,000 in payroll taxes to the Internal Revenue
Services for 1999 and 2001.

 Lionetti, co-worker sentenced in tax case- 41 months in federal prison

I went a total of one time to Lionetti's office in Phillipsburg. Neither
my husband nor I were impressed. I never even actually saw Lionetti
himself (though my appointment was technically with him). I saw his
nurse (maybe nurse practitioner - I don't recall exactly), who
repeatedly called the illness "lymeS" (which has recently become a pet
peeve of mine).

They require a positive PCR before beginning IV treatment. They
indicated to me that that was the only way my insurance would approve.
Fortunately, I can read Aetna's CPBs for myself, and know for a fact
they do not even accept PCR testing as valid for dx of Lyme. Fortunately
for me, I found that out before I had to pay for 20 PCR tests. Chances
of a postive PCR even in a seropostive LYme patient are VERY low. In
their defense, they did warn me (I knew already, but that is beside the
point) that it could take up to 20 individual tests to get a positive.
