Boise, Idaho — Turns out the woman who was posing as a plastic surgeon and giving out fake breast exams is transgender. Police say Kristina Ross, 37, was arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license after two women said she gave them breast exams at a bar. She convinced the women that she was a plastic surgeon named Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. She would offer the women information about liposuction and breast augmentation before talking them into letting her conduct a medical examination, including a breast exam. She would conclude the exam by giving them a phone number to an actual plastic surgeon’s office so they make follow-up appointments. Police were notified after the real plastic surgeon received multiple phone calls from women trying to make follow-up appointments with Dr. Aussiahshowna. When she was taken into custody, they found she had a warrant for her arrest, but under the name Kristoffer Jon Ross. She was actually a he. Or rather, a he in the process of becoming a she. No reports on just how transgendered Ross is, but she is currently being held in the female county jail.
On Wednesday, Ross’ bond was set at $100,000, charged with two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license. Prosecutors argued in court that the “most concerning facts here are that (Ross) is not a doctor and that (Ross) is a male touching women’s breasts under the guise of being a female doctor,” the local newspaper reported, at which point Ross exclaimed, “Oh my god!” I’m not surprised she found women gullible enough to fall for this, and I gotta give her kudos for the made-up name. It’s even better than Vandelay Industries.Tags: Crime, doctor, Idaho
