OctoMom’s doctor may lose licence

California Medical Board alleges that he acted “beyond reasonable judgement”

Dr Michael KamravaThe fertility doctor who treated Octomom,
the California woman who gave birth to octuplets last year, is in
danger of losing his license. The California Medical Board alleges that
Dr Michael Kamrava acted “beyond reasonable judgment” by helping Nadya
Suleman. He implanted 6 embryos when the official guidelines state that
doctors should implant only 2. The board also says that he should have
referred Ms Suleman, who now has 14 IVF children, to a mental health
professional, presumably because of her obsessive interest in having
IVF children.

The American Society of Reproductive
Medicine expelled Dr Kamrava last year, but he still retained his
certificate to practice. Ms Suleman defended her doctor on an internet
video and asked who would treat her if she were to want even more
babies ~ London Times, Jan 5; Time, Jan 5
