I know I won’t  be going to faceplus  Medispa anytime soon and supporting this Doctor! 

Eastern suburbs cosmetic surgeon William Mooney, who boasts he performs “the highest number of nose jobs in Australia,” has to submit to random drug testing as part of the conditions placed on his medical registration, medical sources have confirmed.

On Thursday Dr Mooney had to appear before a special hearing at the NSW Medical Council following revelations by Fairfax Media that two of his patients had died and that their deaths have been referred to the coroner.

Under section 150 of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act, the Medical Council can take immediate action to either suspend or impose restrictions on a NSW doctor’s registration to protect the public while a full investigation is undertaken by the Health Care Complaints Commission.

Medical sources have confirmed that further restrictions have been placed on his registration on top of the current conditions which require the ear, nose and throat surgeon to undergo random drug testing.

The commission confirmed that it has received “a number of complaints” regarding Dr Mooney. “These are currently being assessed in accordance with the commission’s standard processes and in consultation with the Medical Council of NSW,” said a spokesperson for the HCCC.

Dr Mooney is currently being sued for medical negligence in a matter which is listed for mention in the District Court next week.

Meanwhile, Dr Mooney has been suspended from Strathfield Private Hospital pending an external review of the death of his patient Pouya Pouladian. "The hospital is currently co-opertaing with the Coroner and NSW Health," said a spokesperson for the hospital.

Following a request from the coroner, NSW police have spoken to the family of Mr Pouladian, an aspiring pilot who suffered a massive bleed two days after Dr Mooney performed a routine operation for sleep apnoea at Strathfield Private Hospital.

The 24-year-old, who worked at two jobs to support his widowed mother and younger sister, had turned to crowd funding to help raise the $6000 he needed for the operation.
