Description

The Orange County Register documented a ten-year history of problems with Dr. Israel Chambi, chief of neurosurgery at the largest head trauma center in Orange County. It found that Chambi "has repeatedly been accused of performing unnecessary surgeries, making grave errors in the operating room, and lying to patients. Chambi has been sued 10 times as often as any other Orange County neurosurgeon; 10 patients won settlements or verdicts that total more than $3 million." The paper also found that Western Medical Center "had a powerful economic motivation not to ask too many questions: Chambi's division generates $38 million a year in billings for the hospital."
