NATURE OF COMPLAINT

She also committed multiple acts of gross negligence and unprofessional conduct in her care and treatment of a 56-year-old female patient with multiple medical problems. She performed multiple, prolonged, elective cosmetic surgical on the unhealthy patient with insufficient postoperative care, and performed dermabrasion on the patient, who had large, non-healing, open wounds from prior surgeries by Dr. Norton, then left the patient in the care of a medical assistant rather than with a competent physician.
