The fertility doctor who treated "Octomom" Nadya Suleman says he regrets having implanted her with 12 embryos and he would never do it again.

Dr. Michael Kamrava choked back tears as he testified Thursday in his state medical licensing hearing in Los Angeles. He said he believed at the time that he was doing the right thing, but looking back on it now, he was wrong.

He cried as he told the board Suleman's pregnancy was "very risky" and "unhealthy" and she's "lucky she made it through."

Kamrava testified earlier Thursday that Suleman disappeared after he implanted her with the 12 embryos and only learned that she was having octuplets after they were born in January 2009.

The California Medical Board has accused Kamrava of negligence and wants to revoke or suspend his license.
