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.

Clinic Denies Giving Joan Rivers Unwanted Biopsy! See Their Defense HERE!

Filed under: R.I.P.Joan RiversHealth

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.

Not only

Throat Clinic Where Joan Rivers Died Definitely Had The Equipment To Handle ANY Scenario!

Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversHealthMedicine

throat clinic where joan rivers died passed the subsequent investigation and review

They had the resources to handle any possible scenario!

The clinic in New York called Yorkville Endoscopy where Joan Rivers was at when she went into respiratory and cardiac arrest had all of the equipment that any solid hospital has including a state of the art cardiac defibrillator, and medical equipment that helps clear a patient's airway.

Plus the nurses and physicians who work there were all Advanced Cardiac Life Support certified!

Those details will come into play as the clinic undergoes an investigation by the New York Health Department who will review Joan's case, as well as interview all of the staff who were there on that most unfortunate day!

At the time, Joan was undergoing an elective vocal cord procedure at the outpatient clinic when she suddenly stopped breathing during the endoscopy.

Also under review will be whether Joan was given anesthesia during the operation, and whom was the one who administered that. Apparently though the clinic's staff includes in house anesthesiologists whom are all board certified.

Whether Joan's tragic death was just a cruel twist of fate or if Yorkville Endoscopy was somehow responsible - we're sure the NY Health Department will figure all of that out once their investigation is complete.

No word yet though on when that might be!
