GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Two Urgent Care Facilities in Grand Junction and Montrose and a doctor's office in Delta are being searched by authorities right now.

The Drug Enforcement Agency tells 11 News the search warrant is for medical records and is part of an ongoing investigation into the doctor and his practices.

In an 11 News investigation hear from a person who says they're a victim tonight at 5:30 p.m.

In a statement from the Department of Justice, federal authorities say they've seized patient records from the medical practice of Dr. Sam Jahani and/or Dr. Eric Anthony Peper.

Federal agents took the records from Grand Junction and Montrose Urgent Care facilities, as well as Dr. Jahani’s office in Delta.

Authorities say if a patient of Dr. Jahani or Dr. Peper need a copy of their medical file, they must have a medical practitioner call 720-895-4269. They say it's important to note that the records will only be provided to a medical practitioner.

They also say the medical practitioner will need to provide a HIPAA release when requesting the medical records.
