Transplant surgeon's actions defended

Los Angeles Times, February 29, 2008

Hootan Roozrokh, MD, is charged with dependent adult abuse, administering a harmful substance and prescribing controlled substances without a legitimate medical purpose. The criminal proceeding is the first of its kind in the United States against a transplant surgeon.
