Michael Kamrava, Octomom Nadya Suleman's Fertility Doctor, Tearfully Admits He Was Never Board Certified and He Flunked Oral Exam
Dr. Michael Kamrava, the Beverly Hills fertility specialist who over nine years implanted 60 embryos in Octomom Nadya Suleman of La Habra, cried on the stand again yesterday.
Facing a California Medical Board that may revoke his license to practice, Kamrava tearfully admitted he was never board certified in fertility medicine, that he failed his oral exam and that he was kicked out of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
Kamrava was shunned after single mother of six Suleman gave birth to the octuplets on Jan. 26, 2009.
An expert witness for the state previously testified that her treatments could have cost as much as $15,000, but the judge stopped Kamrava from disclosing how much he was paid for the in-vitro treatments that resulted in 14 children.
Kamrava again apologized and wiped away tears as he testified in the hearing that could result in the loss or suspension of license due to "gross negligence."
"I'm sorry for what happened," he said (as reported by RadarOnline). "When I look back at it, I wish I had never done it and it will never happen again."
The hearing continues today.
