Doc Who Gave Testosterone to Bey has License Suspended

by David P. Greisman

The doctor who saw Mickey Bey at a Las Vegas clinic earlier this year — giving him shots of testosterone that would result in the lightweight prospect testing positive with a testosterone ratio higher than 30:1 — has had her license suspended in a different case.

Dr. Carmen F. Jones is accused of allowing a man named Zeeshan Malik Hoodbhoy “to prescribe, administer and dispense controlled substances” to hundreds of patients even though Hoodbhoy did not have a medical license, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Jones is the medial director at the Las Vegas Health Center, which is where Bey sought treatment in January for what he claims were legitimate concerns about his health. Jones is also supposedly the doctor who saw Bey, according to documents he provided to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

But Jones also was medical director of another facility, Agape Health, where — according to the suspension order quoted by the newspaper — “she never met the patients, never treated the patients and also allowed staff, unlicensed persons to treat and inject patients with controlled substances.”

Jones is listed online and in state licensing records as specializing in pediatrics.

Bey was issued a blood test, and though his testosterone and free testosterone levels were within the normal range (albeit low normal), he was diagnosed with hypogonadism, testicular hypofunction, adrenal insufficiency, hormonal imbalance, chronic fatigue and decreased libido.

The Las Vegas Health Center advertises itself online as “the most cutting-edge center in weight loss, bio-identical hormone therapy and anti-aging,” and prominently lists two substances banned in competitive sports (testosterone and human chorionic gonadotropin).

Bey’s attorney told commissioners last month that he had gone to the clinic because his roommate had lost weight there and recommended the facility.

Bey had apparently said at the clinic that he could not have any performance-enhancing drugs — and indeed the notes from his file say that the patient “is aware that performance enhancement is not an option.” Nevertheless, Bey was injected with three testosterone shots prior to his third-round knockout of Robert Rodriguez.

The Nevada Athletic Commission voted last month to suspend Bey for three months and fine him $1,000. A much more detailed report looking into that hearing can be found at: http://www.boxingscene.com/fighting-words-bey-ped-case-skepticism-shades-gray--63929

Great news, now we would not see doctors willing to take the fall for a lot of these druggies. Even if this was not directly linked to the bey incident.
