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.
