A metro Atlanta doctor who recently had her license suspended by the Georgia Medical Board ran into more problems Tuesday. This time, Dr. Nedra Dodds and Opulence Aesthetic Medicine encountered financial trouble.
CBS46 obtained a court order from Cobb County Superior Court which states that the Kennesaw med spa defaulted on a $1.2 million business loan. As a result, the bank seized all medical equipment from the business as collateral.
"All we were told was is that there was a lien put against some of the equipment by a bank," said Rich Johnson with SE Medical Systems.
Johnson was called out to the business on a whim Tuesday to properly dismantle anesthesia equipment so it could be safely removed.
"Some of the equipment is very delicate and can't be moved as is so we were called in to remove the monitoring systems, the anesthesia machine, the controlled drug substances that were on anesthesia they cannot go to a storage facility," Johnson said.
This action comes nearly one month after Dodds' license was suspended following the deaths of two women who lost their lives after having cosmetic procedures at Opulence.
"There is no medical equipment left in this facility," Johnson said. Johnson said about the only thing remaining in the business are computers containing patient files.
