BOISE, Idaho (CBS/KVAL/AP) Police arrested a woman in Idaho's capital city after they say she impersonated a plastic surgeon and conducted breast exams on at least two women in local bars.

Kristina B. Ross was arrested Tuesday and jailed on charges of the unlicensed practice of medicine.

It all started earlier this month, when Boise police were called to a downtown medical office by employees of a licensed plastic surgeon.

Police say the office was getting calls from prospective patients who wanted to see a Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. But no doctor by that name worked at the office.

Police got contact information for the women who had called, interviewed them -- and then tracked down the 37-year-old Ross, who isn't licensed to practice medicine.

According to CBS affiliate KVAL, detectives say they fear there may be others who had fake exams.
