Idaho woman impersonated plastic surgeon

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - November 17, 2010

Kristina B. Ross was arrested Tuesday and jailed on accusations of unlicensed practice of medicine.

It all started earlier this month, when Boise police were called to a downtown medical office by employees of a licensed plastic surgeon.

Police say the office was getting calls from prospective patients who wanted to see a Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. But no doctor by that name worked at the office.

Police got contact information for the women who had called, interviewed them - and then identified the 37-year-old Ross, who isn't licensed to practice medicine.

A phone listing for a Kristina Ross in Boise was disconnected.

Detectives say they fear there may be others who had fake exams.
