Fake doctor gave breast exams in bars

Idaho woman charged with practicing medicine without a license


 

A woman in Salmon, Idaho has been jailed for practicing medicine without a license after she convinced at least two other women to undergo breast exams in Boise nightclubs. Kristina Ross, 37, told the women she was a plastic surgeon and gave them advice on surgery after feeling their breasts. Ross allegedly gave the women the telephone number of a real plastic surgeon, presumably to convince them she was a real doctor. Staff at the doctor’s office complained to police after multiple women called to set up appointments with a doctor they had met in a bar. According to The Idaho Statesman newspaper, Ross was born a man but identifies as a woman.

  1. This sounds like a Kids in the Hall skit but with fewer laughs.

  3. This is quite innovative, it will save a lot health care money in the long run. Doctors should take heed, instead of clinical settings, they should start conducting clinic in bars, restaurant, community/recreation centers. Saves money on rent, and helps people save time by doing many things (socializing and taking care of health at the same time). This way, it also saves hospital emergency units from over crowding and lessen ambulance DUI/over dose calls as health care is in the house. Why it takes a fake to innovate, is quite a shame.

    • Agree… don't forget, this ''woman ''is actually a guy….Pervert….

      • It probably thought that it was previuosly a woman in the body of a man. Now it seems that it is a man in the body of a woman, and a pervert.

  7. Well, if you're asked to undergo a breast examination in a nightclub (a nightclub of all places!), then you could assume that something's fishy here.

  17. From the original in the Vancouver Sun:
    "Police say Ross introduced herself to victims — one at a downtown Boise bar and the other at a nightclub in a Boise suburb — as a plastic surgeon named Berlyn Aussieahshowna, a name that turned out to be bogus. "

    Was this on April 1st?

  19. LOL: how did they know the spelling of "her" name?

    My husband used to joke he'd like to set up a booth at a psychic fair and do "breast readings." I"ll have to tell him his gig's been hijacked.

    Whole story makes me laugh; who the hell would let someone give them a breast exam in a bar?

  20. All depends on one's interpertation of the term '' Breast Examination " I suppose, do Strippers count…just asking…lol…
