Doctor, PA At Liposuction Office Face Discipline
A physician assistant and the anesthesiologist who supervised him are under state scrutiny for how they ran Pacific Liposculpture, an outpatient liposuction business in University City. The State Attorney General’s Office accuses the pair of overselling their weight-reducing surgical expertise and said there was not enough oversight between doctor and assistant, especially when patients experienced complications and post-surgical pain.
