As some of you might know I serve as an expert witness for the California Medical Board in cases of suspected negligence and malpractice. Not long ago I testified in a case of a not-so-qualified doctor (my opinion) in a liposuction death. Remember as the medical expert in this case, I reviewed the doctor’s training and experience. It was so weak that he would have failed a hospital credentials committee evaluation for sure. Unfortunately, these cases are confidential and I can’t divulge the name.
What I can divulge is that leafing through the OC Weekly recently I saw an advertisement by the aforementioned doctor offering incredibly inexpensive breast implant and liposuction work. I wonder if his dead former patient found him in these ads. Be careful when you select a surgeon this way.
