KNX 1070 Report: Former Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgeon Convicted Of Attempted Grand Theft

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A former Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, who was the focus of a year-long KNX1070 investigation, has been convicted of attempted grand theft by a Van Nuys jury.

Dr. Ehab Mohamed tried to sell medical equipment he did not own to a Connecticut health spa for $20,000 in an effort to raise money, he told the spa, so he could leave the U.S. and set up a practice in France.

The KNX1070 investigation revealed that Mohamed had been practicing in the US since 2006 without a proper work visa. He is an Egyptian national whose visa was revoked that year by the U.S. State Department.

Dr. Mohamed, whose medical license has been suspended by the California medical board,is also being investigated by the LAPD in connection with the death of a female patient who underwent a day long, $100,000 liposuction procedure in his Encino office, KNX 1070’s Charles Feldman reports.

The L.A. County District Attorney’s office is deciding whether to charge Mohamed criminally in connection with the death.

Dr. Mohamed has been in jail since July when he was busted in an LAPD sting operation and also has a federal hold on him for his work visa violation.
