Plastic surgeon could lose license after patient's death
The state’s medical board has moved to suspend the license of a Los Angeles-area plastic surgeon whose care allegedly resulted in the death of one of his patients.
Officials called Dr. Ehab Aly Mohamed negligent, saying that on two occasions he apparently misled patients about an affiliation with Harvard University, according to the Medical Board of California's petition to revoke his license.
In one instance, Mohamed allegedly gave a patient a handwritten note with the promise of a $40,000 discount in exchange for the patient’s participation in a “study with Harvard,” according to the petition.
Mohamed could not be reached for comment.
A judge has pushed back his hearing. But in the meantime the doctor is not allowed to perform cosmetic surgeries that pierce the skin, or other procedures.
In a news release, officials with the medical board called the doctor an “imminent danger” to the public.
