Gross Unprofessionalism: Dr. Gwen Korovin Reportedly Took A Selfie Photo With Joan's Unconscious Body...

Sooo Sad. It is being reported today that Dr Gwen Korovin the doctor who performed the throat procedure on Joan Rivers not only took a selfie photo with Joan‘s unconscious body but also performed an unauthorized biopsy that she did NOT sign off on, which may have led to her eventual death. If any of this is true, it would be outrageous to know that Joan Rivers died as a result of such gross unprofessionalism

CNN and TMZ has the scoop:

The cardiac arrest leading to Joan Rivers’ death happened as the comedian’s personal doctor began performing a biopsy on her vocal cords, a source close to the death investigation told CNN. A staff member at Manhattan’s Yorkville Endoscopy clinic told investigators that the doctor, who has not been publicly identified, took a selfie photo in the procedure room while Rivers was under anesthesia, the source said. Rivers, 81, was at the clinic for a scheduled endoscopy by another doctor, gastroenterologist Dr. Lawrence Cohen. That procedure, intended to help diagnose her hoarse voice and sore throat, involved the insertion of a camera down her throat. After Cohen, the clinic’s medical director, finished his work, a biopsy was done on Rivers without her prior consent, according to the source. An ear, nose and throat specialist not certified by the clinic as required by law performed a biopsy on her vocal cords. The doctor is described by the source as Rivers’ personal ear-nose-throat physician. “Even though you are a licensed physician, you still should have, if you will, the checks and balances to get your approval to practice in that particular place,” said Dr. Arthur Caplan, a medical ethicist at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. Investigators believe that Rivers’ vocal chords began to swell during the allegedly unauthorized biopsy, cutting off the flow of oxygen to her lungs, which led to cardiac arrest on the morning of August 29, the source said. Rivers, 81, was rushed by paramedics from Yorkville Endoscopy to New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital a mile away, where she died a week later.

Joan Rivers’ personal doctor who was working on Joan when she stopped breathing is Dr. Gwen Korovin, who treats the biggest celebs in the world … multiple sources tell TMZ. We’re told Dr. Korovin was not authorized to practice medicine at Yorkville Endoscopy center. CNN has reported Joan’s personal physician took a selfie while performing a biopsy on the comedienne. Dr. Korovin’s patient list reads like a celeb who’s who. Her patients include Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Hugh Jackman, John Mayer, and Brooke Shields. Dr. Korovin’s Facebook page has a pic of the doc in her office with pics of her celeb patients lining the walls. The doctor has done interviews in which she says she brings a black bag to the dressing rooms of A-list stars and administers “on-the-spot treatment.” We reached out to Doctor Korovin’s office and were told, “We do not comment on matters related to patients.”

 This selfie ish  is so unbecoming. how can one take a selfie with an unconscious body??? celebrity or not! this is crazy... very crazy indeed! jeeeeezzzzz.... Obviously, the medical clinic is denying everything but this is really damning information that is coming out against them.
