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."
