Doctors Accused of Botched Plastic Surgeries

Two Orange County doctors are accused of botching plastic surgeries, according to the Orange County Register newspaper.

The California Medical Board has filed accusations of gross negligence against Dr. Harrell Robinson of Anaheim Hills, and Dr. Shir Miskinyar of Santa Ana.

One patient claims she went to Dr. Robinson for a tummy tuck but ended up with a facelift and liposuction.  She also says in legal documents cited by the Orange County Register that Dr. Robinson allegedly kissed her and she pushed him away and said, "Shame on you".

Board documents say both doctors are also being investigated for botched breast implant operations.  In two cases the patients developed infections and had to have their implants removed.

Neither physician is board-certified in plastic surgery, according to the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Dr. Miskinyar defends his record and says he treated each patient appropriately.  Dr. Robinson did not comment.

Both doctors could face reprimand or lose their licenses.
