Phoenix, Arizona, Feb. 16, 2021 (UPI) A Phoenix ophthamologist was “outraged” after receiving a death threat from a patient who posted pictures of his face online.
The woman who posted the photos on Facebook said she believed the doctor was trying to cover up his “genuinely creepy” behavior, but a judge ordered the doctor removed from practice.
Phoenix othamologists are trained to treat patients with macular degeneration, but the woman who made the threats had allegedly posted them on Facebook.
The Phoenix ommatologist said in a statement to The Associated Press that she was shocked to receive the threats and called them “horrifying.”
Phoenix omphthamists are trained in eye surgery, and the patient was not a doctor, the statement said.
The ophthalmic surgeon is a licensed ophthalMatic, the Associated Press reported.
