A 27-page filing against Dr. Harrison Robbins, named the Pacific Liposculpture medical director on the company website.

The executive director of the Medical Board of California, Dept. of Consumer Affairs details complaints by former patients and two undercover visits; there are six categories of allegations:

1)  Gross negligence as a supervising physician

2)  Repeated negligent acts

3)  Aiding and abetting unlicensed practice of medicine

4)  False & misleading advertising

5)  Failure to maintain adequate & accurate records

6)  General unprofessional conduct

The accusation states that a physician's assistant does all the surgeries, unsupervised.  Given the title 'director of surgery', despite not attending an accredited medical school, no formal surgical training and no license.

The complaint calls for Robbins' medical license to be revoked or suspended.

Dr. Robbins has a history of lawsuits, bankruptcy, and tax liens, dating back more than a decade.

In 2006--violence.  He and his wife were in front of their house in Encinitas, sitting in their Volvo, when neighbors heard gunshots ring out.  Sybil Robbins was killed that Saturday night; Harrison Robbins wounded and rushed to a hospital.  He eventually recovered.

No arrests; motive unknown. The murder of Sybil Robbins is in the Sheriff's Dept. Cold Case homicide file; an open investigation.

Now Robbins' medical license in jeopardy.
