Downtown businesses owned by Dr. Sonjay Fonn, a local neurosurgeon, are marked “closed,” as of late Thursday.

Fonn’s Fonn Enterprises LLC owns several properties in Cape Girardeau, including Stevie’s Steakburgers at 600 Broadway, Buckner Ragsdale at 132 N. Main St. and The Bar at 117 Themis St., all of which were marked “closed.”

The company also owns Chocolate Works at 411 Broadway, the permanently closed Namaskar at 1001 Broadway, A Child’s Journey Learning Academy at 3037 Lexington Ave., 65 Doctors’ Park and two vacant lots — one on Broadview Street and one on Lexington Avenue. A private residence is also owned by the company, according to online mapping records.

A federal judge in St. Louis recently imposed fines and damages against Fonn totaling $5.49 million.

Fonn and his fiancee, Deborah Seeger, were convicted in November 2017 by a federal jury of submitting false and fraudulent Medicare and Medicaid claims.

Requests for comment from Fonn Enterprises were not immediately returned Friday.
