Breast exams lead to woman's arrest

 BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Police arrested a woman in Idaho's capital city after they say she impersonated a plastic surgeon and conducted breast exams on at least two women in local bars.

Kristina B. Ross was booked into Ada County Jail. She faces accusations of unlicensed practice of medicine.

It all started earlier this month, when Boise Police were called to a downtown medical office by employees of a licensed plastic surgeon.

They were getting calls from prospective patients who wanted to see a Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna.

But no doctor by that name worked there.

Police got names and contact details for the women who had called, interviewed them — and then identified the 37-year-old Ross, who isn't licensed to practice medicine.

Detectives say they fear there may be others who had fake exams or were given the promise of plastic surgery.

Ross has a previous criminal record as a man, according to The Idaho Statesman.
