Glendale doctor's medical license revoked

November 29, 2010 |  2:58 pm

The Medical Board of California revoked Glendale physician Sonia Yacobian's license to practice medicine for failing to show remorse for helping another doctor commit fraud.

After pleading guilty to helping Katrin Saroukhanian evade conviction for defrauding a healthcare benefit program, Yacobian served a six-month prison sentence and was scheduled to remain on probation until July 2011.

State records indicate that Yacobian primarily practiced internal medicine and geriatrics but also runs a chiropractic office in Glendale. Saroukhanian, a Santa Monica-based Westside Boutique Pharmacy owner and operator, illegally dispensed the drug Serostim to a patient, according to medical board records.
