Cosmetic Surgeon May Lose License Over Fatal Treatment

Decision likely within 15 days

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A San Fernando Valley cosmetic surgeon who has been accused of high fees, questionable practices and the death of a patient may have his medical license revoked.

KNX 1070 investigative reporter Charles Feldman says Dr. Ehab Mohamed is confident he can beat the charges.

State officials want Mohamed’s medical license suspended after a patient died while undergoing a procedure in his office.

Mohamed is currently permitted to work with restrictions.

While arguing to have Mohamed’s license suspended, state officials said the doctor does not know what he’s doing when he administers drugs to patients.

Mohamed ’s attorney Ronald marks says he’s confident the doctor will get to operate.

A decision on Dr. Mohamed ’s license is expected within 15 days.

    I’m confused, when thiswas originaly reported I though they stated that this guy was an OB/GYN and now he is calling himself a cosmetic surgeon. Which is it? And of he is actually licensed as an OB/GYN whoin their right mind would go to himfor cosmetic surgery, although that does not require the education level of a plastic surgeon specialty. It’s sad to think that people may be deceivedby these kinds of people and risk their lives. I wouldn’t take my dog to him for care after hearing what he hs done to this woman Pull his license nationwide!
