LOS ANGELES (AP) - The fertility doctor who treated octuplets mother Nadya Suleman is at a licensing hearing in Los Angeles to face allegations that he implanted her with too many embryos.
Wearing a gray suit and a blank expression, Dr. Michael Kamrava sat quietly alongside his lawyer at the hearing Monday.
The California Medical Board is seeking to revoke or suspend the Beverly Hills doctor's license.
Kamrava helped Nadya Suleman (NAH'-dee-uh SOO'-luh-mahn) conceive her octuplets and six other children through in vitro fertilization.
Fertility specialists have criticized Kamrava's methods, saying he endangered Suleman's health, and the lives and long-term health of the babies.
The eight children were born nine weeks premature in January 2009 and are the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets.
