The California State Medical Board reportedly suspended Michael Kamrava’s medical license due to gross negligence. He faces loss of medical license.
Kamrava began treating Suleman in 1997 and implanted her with all 14 of her children. The Board is claiming that Nadya should have been referred for a mental health evaluation. Suleman's actions put her current and future children at risk, and the Board suggests that Kamrava should have sent Suleman to therapy instead of obliging her extreme maternal cravings.
Additionally, the 13-page accusation filed in December says that over 11 years Suleman returned to Dr. Michael Kamrava's office repeatedly. The number of embryos Kamrava transferred in July 2008 was so abnormal they "should not be transferred into any woman, regardless of age" and the transfers went "beyond the reasonable judgment of any treating physician."
Kamrava is reportedly "devastated" and it is reported that Suleman agrees stating: “He did nothing wrong. Absolutely nothing wrong.”
Despite the spate of "concern" over her ability to care for her babies - especially after she kicked out the "helper" spying nannies sent by Gloria Allred - there has not been a single allegation of abuse or neglect of the children of this most vilified mother....which is not to be misconstrued as either I - or Nadya herself - recommending anyone follow in her footsteps.
What a disappointment she must be - so far - to all those who are just waiting to pounce and say "I told you so!"
From the start, I maintained that Suleman - unlike the Gosselins or the Duggers - was being criticized not for the number of kids she had, but because she did so as a single mother, and not a wealthy one (which also would have been a "get out of trouble" card).
Now, she and divorced Kate Gosselin are on almost equl footing though Suleman was highly criticized for her marital status. In fact, Kate - with all the money and big home she and John acquired by exploiting her family on reality TV - was caught on camera yelling at and spanking her children on more than one occasion. Some have criticized her for Type A style of parenting but she remains one of America's sweethearts who may wind up with her own show.
The question at hand is whether infertility doctors have an obligation to assess a clients' mental state and refuse them treatment - especially in a case such as this where fertilized embryos already existed?
What do you think?
