The Medical Board of California is opening a licensing hearing against the doctor who helped Nadya Suleman conceive her octuplets and six other children through in vitro fertilization.
Beverly Hills Dr. Michael Kamrava is accused of implanting too many embryos in Suleman, whose moniker "Octomom" is a reference to the octuplets he helped her conceive.
The babies were born in 2009, and have since become the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets.
Fertility specialists have criticized Kamrava's methods, saying he endangered the lives and long-term health of the babies.
The board also accuses the fertility doctor of negligence in the treatment of two other women.
The board could revoke or suspend his license.
