Fake doctor gave breast exams in bars

Idaho woman charged with practicing medicine without a license

by

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.
