DR. WINDELL DAVIS-BOUTTE, LOSES MEDICAL LICENSE AFTER UPLOADING VIDOES OF DANCING DURING SURGERY
A dermatologist who can be seen on video dancing to the hip-hop song “Cut It” while performing a surgical procedure was suspended on Thursday by the Georgia medical board, which said her continued practice “poses a threat to the public health, safety, and welfare.”
The dermatologist, Dr. Windell Davis-Boutte, is the medical director and chief executive of Boutté Contour Surgery & Skin in Lilburn, Ga., an Atlanta suburb. On her website she describes herself as a “DOCTOR TO THE STARS!” — someone with “a surgeon’s hands” and “a woman’s touch.”
She wanted to be known as the “dancing doctor,” said Latoyah Rideau, the patient who appears in the video and who is now planning to sue Dr. Davis-Boutte for pain and suffering.
Instead of dancing, Ms. Rideau said, Dr. Davis-Boutte should have been paying more attention to her work.
