NewsWest 9 has confirmed that FBI agents raided the Healthy Heart Center in Odessa off E. 4th St on Wednesday afternoon.

The FBI tells NewsWest 9 this is part of a "routine search warrant" that was carried out at noon today at the offices of Dr. Suresh Gadasalli.

Agents are still on the scene and we'll continue to bring you the latest as we get it.

Here's a bit of information we found on Dr. Gadasalli on the Texas Medical Board website:

On November 6, 2009, the Board and Dr. Gadasalli entered into an agreed order requiring the following: that within one year he take and pass the Texas Medical Jurisprudence Examination; within one year he obtain five hours of continuing medical education in medical ethics; and within 180 days he pay an administrative penalty of $10,000. The action was based on Dr. Gadasalli's interpersonal communication difficulties with hospital staff and his inadequate maintenance of a patient's medical record.
