Joan Rivers' Personal Doctor Allegedly Took A Selfie During Her Throat Procedure

This is absolutely horrendous.

According to a staff member at Manhattan's Yorkville Endoscopy clinic, Joan Rivers' personal doctor allegedly took a selfie in the middle of the procedure room while Joan had been under anesthesia.

Another doctor, Dr. Lawrence Cohen, then performed the endoscopy she had been scheduled for.

After the endoscopy, Joan's personal doctor (an ear, nose and throat specialist uncertified by the clinic) allegedly performed an unauthorized biopsy without Joan's consent, according to the staff member.

During this alleged biopsy is when Joan reportedly experienced cardiac arrest, according to the source.

If these allegations are true, we'd be shocked and disgusted at the level unprofessional incompetence on the part of her personal doctor.

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

| Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversNew YorkHealth

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.

Besides asking that her hair blow in the wind like Beyoncé, Joan asked the multi-talented Hugh Jackman to sing at her funeral at New York's Temple Emanu-El last week.

Of course, Hugh obliged. 

Joan was convinced that the hunk was the right man for the job when she saw him in The Boy from Oz.

joan rivers death clinic denies biopsy report

The passing of Joan Rivers was so sudden it has a lot of people pointing fingers.

A report came out on Wednesday that the clinic where Joan stopped breathing had allowed a doctor to give her a biopsy that she never agreed to while she was under anesthesia.

This is obviously a very serious and shocking allegation that could get several people fired and worse. If it's true.

But Yorkville Endoscopy is denying the entire story.

Melissa honored her mother by reading a passage of her upcoming book A Letter to My Mom, set to be published in April, that she wrote to her mother. 

It centered around the fact that Joan used to stay with Melissa when she would fly back to LA from New York to tape her Fashion Police episodes. 

The whole thing is quite hilarious and totally the type of tribute she'd want from her daughter.
