Fake Doc Charged With Giving Breast Exams in Bars Used to Be a Man

Christina or Chris?

BOISE, Idaho (The Blaze/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. But "she" used to be a "he."

Kristina B. Ross was arrested Tuesday and jailed on 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.

Police say the office was getting calls from prospective patients who wanted to see a Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. But no doctor by that name worked at the office.

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

Ross, however, hasn't always been a woman. According to KVAL, Boise Police detectives say "Christinia" used to be "Chris" but had reconstructive surgery.

According to prosecutors, Christina would convince women she was a plastic surgeon, get women to disrobe, feel their breasts, and then gave diagnoses.

"Christina" is being charged with two felony counts for the unlicensed practice of medicine.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
