Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman has not been called to testify at the hearing of her controversial gynecologist Dr Michael Kamrava, has exclusively learned.

And, if she is ordered by the court to appear then America’s most famous mom will defend the man who masterminded the birth of her octuplets.

Dr Kamrava - who has been accused of gross negligence by the California Attorney General – has a hearing scheduled to take place from October 18 to October 29, 2010 in Los Angeles.

Suleman’s lawyer Jeff Czech told “So far, Nadya has not been asked to appear but if she was ordered to do so then she would comply.

“Her position is that Dr Kamrava did not do anything wrong - he knew her medical history beforehand and acted accordingly.

“Nadya believes that Dr Kamrava complied with her wishes as his patient.”

Dr. Kamrava is accused of gross negligence, repeated negligent acts and of keeping inadequate records. The CA Attorney General said that the doctor transferred “a number of blastocyst embryos far in excess of ASRM recommendation and beyond the reasonable judgment of any treating physician.”

The complaint alleges that Kamrava retrieved too many ooctyes from Suleman when frozen embryos were available and that he planted far too many embryos during her final pregnancy.

"If they are saying he transferred too many, he didn't do anything wrong," Nadya told exclusively. She denied that the doctor did not use the frozen embryos, saying that in her last treatment "he used all the frozen embryos." This treatment resulted in the octuplet pregnancy.

The Board also said Dr. Kamrava used gross negligence by not referring Nadya for a mental health evaluation. "I've never heard any of that before and that's their subjective use," she said. Nadya began her first fertility treatments in 1997 and told "They didn't do it back then."
