ATLANTA (AP) - Federal authorities say they’ve charged a chiropractor operating out of an Atlanta truck stop with falsifying required medical exams for truckers.

The exams are aimed at ensuring that drivers operate safely on the nation’s highways.

Prosecutors say the probe began when federal investigators learned Anthony Lefteris conducts an average of 360 medical exams per month, when other medical professionals typically conduct 13 or 14.

Court records show three law officers went undercover to Lefteris’ office in the Petro Atlanta truck stop near Interstate 285. Prosecutors say Lefteris skipped required tests such as vision, hearing and a urine sample, but filled out forms indicating he had done so.

Truckers must pass the tests to maintain their Commercial Driver Licenses.

Lefteris didn’t respond to telephone messages left at his office Monday.
