Lakewood doctor accused of mishandling medical waste surrenders license
A Lakewood gynecologist accused of mishandling medical waste from abortions voluntarily surrendered his medical license Monday.
Doctor Flavius Thompson, who performs abortions at the Pleasant Women?s Pavillion, is accused of flushing aborted fetuses down the toilet. Thompson surrendered his license pending the outcome of a hearing before the board of medical examiners.
Thompson recently turned in one of his receptionists, Liza Berdeil. She is accused of performing abortions on her own without a medical license, and pocketing the money.
Thompson?s hearing is scheduled for February 9.
