LOS ANGELES (AP) — The fertility doctor for octuplets mother Nadya Suleman choked on his words and wiped at tears as he testified at a hearing to keep his medical license.
Dr. Michael Kamrava was seemingly shaken as the hearing Wednesday in Los Angeles detailed his life decades before he helped Suleman have the octuplets and six other children through in vitro fertilization.
Kamrava stammered and went silent on the stand before describing his emigration from his native Iran to the United States in 1968, at age 16.
Earlier in the hearing, an expert witness testified that the doctor was remorseful for treating Suleman.
The California Medical Board is seeking to revoke or suspend Kamrava’s license for his role in conceiving the octuplets, who were born in January 2009.
