Doctor Says He Learned About Octuplets After Birth

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The fertility doctor for “Octomom” says his patient disappeared after he implanted her with 12 embryos and didn’t learn about the octuplets until after their birth.

Dr. Michael Kamrava testified Thursday at a licensing hearing in Los Angeles that Nadya Suleman was adamant about using all 12 embryos during their last appointment in July 2009. Kamrava says he suggested only implanting four embryos but obeyed her wishes.

He says he didn’t hear from Suleman again until she called him the day after she gave birth in January 2009.

Kamrava treated Suleman with in vitro fertilization for all her 14 children.

The California Medical Board alleges that Kamrava was negligent in the treatment of Suleman and two other patients, and is seeking to revoke or suspend his license.

    Sure he didn’t know. Liar!!! He needs to have his medical licence revoked and pay for all the medical costs.

    Of course he knew! Does he think we’re all that stupid?! Besides, isn’t HE the professional and NOT Nadya Suleman?! Shouldn’t HE have refused to implant so many embryos?! No professional doctor would do something unethical and life-threatening to his patient just because his patient insisted on it! He should LOSE HIS LICENSE AND GO TO JAIL!!!

    He isn’t the only responsible party. Don’t let her off the hook. 6 kids, no job, she never should have been a candidate. Leave jails for the murderers and thieves. House arrest would be good for him.

      House arrest at her house would be better. Force him to spend a year dealing with and raising all those little kids.
