The state medical board has disciplined 12 Orange County doctors this year, including four who lost their licenses for violations from dealing drugs to bilking Medicare, according to documents recently released by the board. Here are the board’s accusations against the doctors, and the disciplinary actions taken:
• Dr. Robert Rudy Beltran, a plastic surgeon in Irvine, was reprimanded in April and accused of not telling a patient before performing a thigh-lift procedure that he was trained in ear, nose and throat surgery. Beltran was also cited for allegedly failing to appropriately treat the post-surgical wound complications and for not keeping accurate medical records. Beltran said he has contested the wording in the board’s reprimand and said they misrepresented the facts in the case
