Somebody was searching for gandotra. I have information on Magdalena Rodrigez, who died after a botched abortion by Suresh Gandotra. Here are some other cases:
Gandotra then sent Alicia home after performing an incomplete abortion, without medication, hoping that the fetus would be expelled.
Alicia returned, suffering from an infection, and Gandotra attempted unsuccessfully to complete the abortion. He perforated Alicia's uterus. Alicia had to be taken to the hospital. She arrived in hemorrhagic shock, having lost at least 40% of her blood. But Gandotra had falsely described Alicia's condition as "stable," and had failed to notify the other medical staff that he had administered a Dopamine drip to Alicia. This error could have led to Alicia being given medications that would have reacted to the Dopamine in her system, possibly killing her.
Alicia required emergency surgery, which found a 3 cm cervical laceration extending 4 cm into the upper part of her vagina. Gandotra also made a 5 cm laceration in Alicia's bladder. Medical board documents note "damage to the patient was so extensive that it was difficult to identify her anatomy."
Gandotra indicated to another doctor that he thought he had removed part of Alicia's intestine.
At the time he performed Alicia's abortion, Gandotra had just finished a 9-month jail sentence for criminal convictions. When questioned by medical board investigators about Alicia's case, Gandotra stated "I guess I just screwed up." (San Diego County, South Bay Judicial District, California Superior Court Case No. S6003494; San Diego News Notes February 1995; LA Times 3-21-95)
Documents indicate that Gandotra lost his medical license in New York in 1992, and served 8 months in prison in 1990 for 17 felony counts, including forging prescriptions, grand theft, Medi-Cal fraud, aiding in furnishing of dangerous drug without authorized prescription, aiding and abetting unlawful prescription of controlled substance, and assisting in unlicensed practice of medicine. An article states that Gandotra remains licensed in Iowa and Illinois. He served primarily a Hispanic population, but was not known to speak Spanish. (San Diego Union-Tribune 12-13-94; Orange County Register 12-15-94; Santa Monica Outlook 12/94; San Diego County, South Bay Judicial District, California Superior Court Case No. S6003494)
Gandotra, a 1971 graduate of Guru Nanek University, was born in 1949. He continues to practice medicine -- or at least, he practice still shows up as current in web searches -- in California.
