The owner of Obengfo Hospital (Advanced BodySculpt Center) Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh has responded to critics who say he is a quack doctor operating illegally.
He rubbished claims that he is unqualified to practice medicine, stating that critics were only jealous.
This is coming after his state-of-the-art medical facility was closed down recently over licensing issues in an operation led by the Ghana Medical and Dental Council and the Police CID, although, it has since opened for operation.
The doctor told Starr FM that he believes some practitioners, who are jealous about his progress, are using a section of the media to sully his reputation.
He said, “I remain undaunted and I will continue to whole-heartedly serve mother Ghana.
“I have absolutely nothing to hide. What I’m doing, not all plastic surgeons can do.
“I’m not operating illegally, but there are issues and these are diabolic actions to frustrate me.
The Florida-trained doctor maintained that some officials of the Council were only bent on destroying his brand without any basis.
He said, “This is sheer jealousy. I’m actually doing what no doctor is really doing and I have advanced the level. I get clients that no doctor is getting and receiving people some doctors are not getting; celebrities, journalists, doctors and international people from the US, UK among others.
“The frosty relationship between the Council and my outfit began in 2012 when I was allegedly cited for unfair advert.
“The Council went ahead to suspend me for three years against natural justice because I was never invited at any hearing.
“I have appealed against the suspension at the Appeal Court hence the Council has no basis to close my facility down.
“I won’t fight anybody. I’ll do my work and will not go chasing people to like me. I have not broken any law and won’t say anything against any colleague doctor.
“I have never had any life-threatening complications here. I’ve never had any death situations or my actions leading to anyone’s death, but I’m not saying it can’t happen.
“However, I can assure you that I resort to the highest safety measures.
“Whatever is going on is a clear orchestrated personal vendetta. I have not referred any client form here to another hospital concerning cosmetic surgery. In any case, I have also treated patients with complications and that is not a crime. Every doctor once in a while confronts issues of complications and none of us is insulated against complications whether you are a professor or whatever.
