Dr. Michael Kamrava, the Beverly Hills fertility doctor who helped his patient Nadya Suleman (a/k/a 'the Octomom') birth octuplets after delivering her six other children via in vitro fertilization, was sued by California's Medical Board for multiple counts of gross negligence.

According the lawsuit (see below), Kamrava:

  • Negligently used fresh embryo transfers when he should have used already available frozen embryos;
  • Systematically transferred an excessive number of blastocyt embryos that exceeded the medically recommended number for Suleman's age and medical history;
  • Failed to refer Suleman for a mental health evalution, given her multiple IVF births to six children prior to getting pregnant and delivering octuplets;
  • Failed to maintain adequate medical records;and
  • Engaged in repeated acts of negligence which, in addition to the above allegations, included giving Suleman high doses of Gonadotropin protein hormones
