Licensing Hearing Resumes For ‘Octomom’ Doctor

LOS ANGELES (AP) — State licensing hearings are set to resume for the fertility doctor whose in vitro treatments resulted in “Octomom” Nadya Suleman’s octuplets.

In the hearings slated to restart Monday, The Medical Board of California alleges Dr. Michael Kamrava was negligent in the treatment of Suleman and two other patients. It’s seeking to revoke or suspend his license.

The hearing kicked off last week with sometimes tearful testimony from Kamrava, who apologized for implanting Suleman with 12 embryos during questioning from his lawyer.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor said Suleman insisted on implanting all 12 embryos, and consented to fetal reduction if too many fetuses began growing in her womb.

The state’s lawyer will have an opportunity to cross examine Kamrava this week.
