Anyone hear about this? What are your thoughts?
I didn't know this doctor was also under fire for how he handled two other patients, too. To me, his excuses for how he handled things (or didn't handle them) are very weak and pathetic.
I personally am glad he's had his license revoked. I feel that as a fertility doctor, he has an ethical responsibility to protect the health and safety of his patients. Transferring as many as 12 embryos during an IVF procedure is incredibly ridiculous and in doing so, he made a mockery of fertility clinics. My RE is super responsible and tries very hard to keep multiple birth rates low (and aim for nothing more than twins if they can help it) because it poses a health risk to both mother and babies, and I fully support that.
Anyways, what are your thoughts?
