Joan Rivers' Endoscopy Doctor Fired After Procedure That Led To Her Death

joan rivers clinic doctor fired procedure yorkville endoscopy

We still don't know for sure what caused Joan Rivers' tragic death.

But as New York authorities continue to investigate the disputed circumstances, it seems at least that the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic is not waiting for more information.

According to sources at the clinic, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, a world-renowned doctor who co-founded Yorkville Endoscopy, was asked to step down from the board there.

He also has apparently been on administrative leave since August 28th.

Sources report that the board took issue with Dr. Cohen allowing Joan's ear-nose-throat doctor to step in and perform or help with some kind of procedure, even though he wasn't licensed at the clinic.

It was reported that procedure was an unauthorized biopsy, but the clinic is denying that.

    Just like I thought Joan was dead when she left that Clinic and they knew it and Dr. Cohen did not step down cuz he Didn't do anything cuz if he allowed another Dr do anything to Joan he is just as Guilty. That's why the clinic didn't give a timeline initiallt
