Patient: Encino Surgeon Jacked Up Prices During Sedation

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A former patient of an Encino cosmetic surgeon who is in hot water with the state medical board — and being investigated by police — has come forward to tell her story.

In an interview with KNX 1070 investigative reporter Charles Feldman, Anne Maria McMahon says her visit to Dr. Ehab Mohamed was a nightmare, claiming he charged her for work he never performed.

McMahon also says Mohamed jacked up the price while she was sedated, and even let her drive home alone when she was in no condition to do so — a violation of state law.

The California medical board is using Anne Maria's case as one of several to challenge Dr. Mohamed's license.

Phone calls to Mohammed's office were not returned.
