Well, we all saw this coming. Octomom's doctor -- Doctomom, for our purposes -- has had his medical license revoked, effective July 1. KABC reports that Dr. Michael Kamrava, the Beverly Hills physician that implanted 12 embryos into Nadya Suleman via in fitro treatments, was investigated shortly after Suleman gave birth to her eight babies in 2009. The babies were born in addition to six that she already had.

The Medical Board of California made their decision based on Kamrava's admission to implanting the 12 embryos, which is six times the number appropriate for a woman Suleman's age. He is suspected of having been negligent with two other patients as well.

According to KABC: "The board said Wednesday that the decision is necessary to protect the public."
