Dr. Reffat Kamel Abofreka still making the blog rounds. Check out his web site!

Some folks have been dutifully blogging about how Dr. Reffat Kamel Abofreka recently -- finally! -- got his medical license suspended. Since he's evidently new news again for some reason, here is what I previously blogged about him. To be honest, I don't see why Virginia is getting their panties in a twist over this quack. I've seen worse who were allowed to keep practicing. The best I've been able to guess is that medical boards tend to use a light hand with quacks that say, "I'm so sorry. It'll never happen again," and to crack down on quacks who try to brazen it out. Though Steve Brigham, who the New Jersey medical board stopped just short of calling a psychopath, kept his license despite his lack of remorse or appreciation of his own shortcomings.

There are writeups here, here, here, and here

And here is Abofreka's web site, still up! Oh, what a piece of work is this man!

Well, actually, judging from the care he gave his patients he does abortions well past 12 weeks. Patient A turned out to have been 23.2 weeks pregnant. What other patients were past 12 weeks but didn't complain to the medical board we'll likely never know about. But back to the web site.

The bottom of every page has the logos for all the credit cards he accepts.

Let's click on a hyperlink, shall we? "Gynecological/Infertility Services" brings us:
Gynecological Surgery

Attached to the office is my private surgical suite with recovery room, Springdale Surgical Center. The surgical suite is state of the art, with all the up-to-date equipment and instruments for any out patients GYN surgical procedures.

He also does laser hair removal, which may be one of the few things he could be trusted to do without botching it. I clicked on the page for "Location & Directions" and found this little snippet:
Dr. Abofreka trained in Obstetrics & Gynecology and Infertility in England and the U.S.A. (five years each). He finished his chief resident position at Good Samaritan Hospital at Cencennate, Ohio 1976. Since then, he has been in solo practice.

So, helpful hint: If your abortionist can't spell Cincinati, go elsewhere.
