Medical Board Hears Arguments In Octomom Doctor Case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Medical Board of California has heard final arguments about whether “Octomom” Nadya Suleman’s fertility doctor should have his license revoked for allegedly providing substandard care to her and two other patients.

The state’s medical licensing agency met Thursday in Los Angeles to consider what discipline, if any, Dr. Michael Kamrava should face. It is unclear when the board’s decision will be made public, but Kamrava and his attorney will be notified first.

In February, the board denied a proposed ruling by a judge to place Kamrava on five years of probation.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor testified to implanting Suleman with 12 embryos — six times the norm for a woman her age — before the pregnancy that resulted in octuplets.

      I say cease all assets of the good doctor and give it to welfare, that’s paying this human copying machine.

        I would put her mouth to work, that’s for sure.

    Before Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted the embryos, he should have inquired as to whether Nadya had any children. If he did and still implanted 12 embryos, then throw the book at him regardless of what Nadya may have asked him to do!!!

    Appropriate levels of discipline meted out by the California state Medical Board?

    Don’t hold your breath.

    The reality – as found in the world of physician misbehavior investigators such as myself – is that California is a terrific place to be a lab coat lunatic.

    When it comes to wacky doc discipline by the State Medical Board, the best that can be said is that California leads the bottom of the pack.

    In other words, according tp the watchdog folks at the Health Research Group, our state is the best of the worst 11. Wow.

    The fact is, California’s rate of reigning in bad docs has fallen dramatically over the last decade, and this puts hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens at risk. When one considers that “bad doctoring” kills 400+ Americans EVERYDAY, one might think state boards would suspect it a bright idea to ratchet up the discipline. And in several small ways, they have.

    But when it comes to the cases like the following (and these are but a few of the 1,100 California nightmares we have on file) you can decide for yourselves whether the Golden State is being well-served by its Medical Board:

    The Ivan Namihas, MD case – More than 140 women complained of his sexual assaults, over 30 years. Never disciplined for any of it.

    The Andrew Rutland, MD case. Patients kept dying unnecessarily, and the doctor the state board sent to council him had – himself – a very dubious history.

    Amanda Waugh, MD – who worked while drunk.

    Michael T McEnany, MD – Kaiser Cardiac surgeon – His swathe of patient distruction was covered up at every level

    Just for your own enlightenment, you might type in Redding Medical Center Scandl into your favorite search tool. If that doesn’t scare you, you may already be dead.
