A Georgia medical board has suspended the medical license of a Gwinnett dermatologist who recorded herself singing and dancing to rap music while performing invasive procedures on patients.
Dr. Windell Boutte publicly shared her side of the story for the first time, stating that there’s nothing that she would have done differently as the death that occurred happened through unforeseen circumstances.
The ‘dancing doctor’ sat down with CBS46 Investigative Reporter Karyn Greer just hours before the state medical board suspended her license.
Full interview below…
‘An unpredictable, unpreventable, unfortunate event forever changed my life.’ Dr. Windell Boutte states in the video above that there was absolutely nothing she, nor any human being, could have foreseen the medical emergency that caused the catastrophic brain injury of a 54 year-old patient.
While the Dr. couldn’t speak on the specific event due to HIPPA laws, she states that every patient video taped while she was dancing gave their consent.
It was always pre-consented and pre discussed and when, at a safe interval, mostly 99% after the surgery in recovery… then and only then would a 30 to 60 second video would be shot.
Georgia law doesn’t stipulate any requirement on what type of medical professional can actually preform plastic surgery. OBGYN’s, Dentists, Podiatrists, Dermatologists… any licensed medical professional can perform cosmetic surgeries in Georgia (let that sink in for a moment!)
Dr. Boutte, a dermatologist, is asked if she had enough training to perform the invasive procedures that have sparked the many malpractice allegations against her.
My experience with dermatological and skin surgery is intense, it’s comprehensive, it’s vast and I think it’s the best experience that anyone could ask for.
Georgia lawmakers briefly passed a law to protect the public but the law was rescinded when doctors complained about the restrictions.
Susan Witt, an attorney who filed three of the seven known lawsuits filed against Boutte said that the state of Georgia does little to protect the public from greedy practitioners.
