    • Action Taken: Surrender
    • Summary: Dr Craig James Ball; License # G38467

      Nature of Complaint:

      The Physician committed professional misconduct by falsifying his malpractice insurance coverage for his practice at an ambulatory surgery center.

      The Physician altered his malpractice coverage certificate he had received while covered under a master policy at a local hospital. The policy stated 'no coverage for private practice'. The Physician had his sister-in-law alter the certificate and he submitted the altered certificate as proof of his malpractice insurance coverage.

      The Physician also failed to meet the standard of care in his treatment of a patient that he performed liposuction. The Physician took an excessive amount of total apirate with resulting skin necrosis, scarring, and permanent contour irregularity resulting from his errors in judgement and errors in technique. He violated the privacy of the patient and orchestrated the creation off threatening letters to two physicians.

      Action Taken:

      The Board has accepted the Physician's Surrender of his license to practice medicine in the State of California.
