Dr. Oliver Jenkins and Sherry-Ann Jenkins, operators of The Toledo Clinic Cognitive Center, were sentenced to prison after being convicted by a jury of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, and health care fraud. Dr. Oliver Jenkins never saw or treated patients at the Cognitive Center. Sherry-Ann Jenkins ordered PET scans of patients’ brains, interpreted the scans, and diagnosed patients, one as young as 21 years old, with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other impairments. She also recommended patients take coconut oil to improve memory and instructed certain patients to see her every three to six weeks for the rest of their lives.
