Dr Windell Boutte

A Georgia medical board has suspended the license of a Gwinnett dermatologist who recorded herself singing and dancing to rap music while performing invasive procedures on patients.

Dr Windell Boutte

In an interview with HLN the day before her license was yanked, Dr. Windell Boutte defended her actions, saying she did nothing wrong.

"Yes, I've done the soul searching, and no, I've done nothing wrong," said Boutte.

Boutte, who is not a licensed plastic surgeon, took advantage of lax Georgia laws that allow any doctor with a license to set up a surgical suite in a storefront and begin advertising liposuction procedures.

Multiple patients filed complaints against Boutte for malpractice. Her insurance company settled lawsuits filed by 5 former patients, including a woman who suffered a permanent brain injury and requires full care for the rest of her life.

Among the evidence against Boutte are 21 Youtube videos that shows the dermatologist dancing in the operating room while reciting the lyrics to rapper T.I.'s hit song "Whatever You Like" and singing along to OT Genesis' rap song, "Cut It".

Boutte said the videos were recorded in a "safe and controlled environment" towards the end of the procedures.

She said she had permission from her patients to make the videos to educate the public. But her former patients say they did not give Boutte permission to post the videos on social media.

There is no law to prevent any doctor -- even a dentist -- from performing liposuction surgery in Georgia.

Georgia lawmakers briefly passed a law to protect the public but the law was rescinded when doctors complained about the restrictions.

“We see emergency room physicians who are doing boob jobs and tummy tucks -- they are total hack jobs,” said Susan Witt, an attorney who filed three of the seven known lawsuits filed against Boutte.

Witt said Georgia does little to protect the public from greedy practitioners.

“There is nothing that prevents a doctor from hanging up a shingle and saying they do liposuction,” Witt told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    What a stone cold fool. Just a clown.

  • RaginB

    How’d you get your license suspended?...“I use to record myself dancing and singing while operating on my paitients”.................

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    "Boutte, who is not a licensed plastic surgeon, took advantage of lax Georgia laws that allow any doctor with a license to set up a surgical suite."
    This is what happens when you draw attention to yourself when committing illegal or questionable activity. See where shuckin' and jivin' got you.. the poorhouse.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A simple question such as "are you a licensed surgeon?" would have sufficed.

  • BadAss Will

    A dermatologist yet playing in people ass, smh... These loopholes in laws..

  • Kemi

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Demon shyt ... prepare to be stripped ... tried it you bytch ... and for that ... yo slick azz mouth playing with folks lives .... all yo shyt bout to be stripped ... ?

  • Cannelle

    Also, she is a dermatologist. I know that there are some fine and qualified dermatologists that can perform some surgical procedures (clearly not her), but uh...if I want plastic surgery, I am going to someone who specializes in it.

  • shelly

    If these women did their research all of this could be avoided. I bet she offered cut rate prices.

  • Cannelle

    This lady is scum! Carving people up for laughs and all she gets is her license suspended. I hope that the victims win their lawsuits. They will like experience a lifetime of pain due to her carelessness.

  • Cali

    She is ridiculous!

  • Rayne

    Ctfu!

  • Cali

    Doesn't matter if they "agreed" to be recorded, etc. You have a Duty to do no harm bish whilst cutting into the flesh of a human being. She is irresponsible, self-absorbed, unsympathetic and should be locked up.

  • Kemi

    She’s not remorseful at all.. All about the money! Glad her license was suspended

  • Alextra Ballard

    They made me remove my small loop earrangs.

  • blue skies

    smh

  • Renee26

    I bet she lost her license due to her shoddy work and not getting signed releases from the people she put online. Ever watch a Dr Miami video?? Surgeons listen to music during surgeries all the time and I'm sure they dance too so I don't see an issue with that. I went under listening to Rihanna at my own request before...People need to do their due diligence when seeking out plastic surgeons those people should be upset with thier choice in doctor looking at those results.

  • the guest

    Did it have to be rap music. It couldn’t have been be her doing air violin and humming Bach. I’m just saying black professionals face so much unfair scrutiny and stereotyping and this case will be used as racist ammunition against the image of black professionals in the medical field.

    No matter how credentialed, educated, and refined, black medical professionals still face racism. Remember the racist white airline stewardess condescending the credentials of the black female doctor offering to help a sick passenger a few years ago that was reported in the news?

    Why did this dermatologist videotape herself “bugging eyed and coon dancing” and how did someone get these videos? Please don’t tell me she uploaded these herself.

  • Renee26

    Agreed

  • Renee26

    They could always lie...Checking public records to see is the best bet.

  • Renee26

    I think they did upload them themselves...everybody wants to be an internet star these days

    I agree with all that you said here... Music is a commonality in surgical rooms

  • Ajavee

    Dr. Windell Boutte can defend herself until she is blue in the face what she did was unprofessional. Dr. Boutte violated so many health and ethical violations I don't even know where to begin. The person who recorded these videos should be reprimanded as well. How could she become a doctor not knowing about The Hippocratic Oath?

  • Ajavee

    The fact that as Black professionals we face such scrutiny should let you know we have to stay on our A game at all times. We have to always work twice as hard.

  • country57

    She settled 5 lawsuits, one of her former patients has a serious brain injury, which left her disabled for the rest of her life.

  • the guest

    Exactly!

    That’s why I don’t understand this. She is seriously lacking black self awareness and consciousness to have done this. She didn’t even think how her behavior would affect other black professionals in the plastic surgery field. I’m so disappointed in her. She could have built a reputable practice but instead she put on minstrel shows and harmed people.

    We shouldn’t have to work twice as hard but we do because we are judged as a whole not as individuals. She is the exception NOT the standard of black medical professionals.

  • the guest

    Some things we keep for the privacy of our cars and living rooms. She didn’t know to keep her rap playlist out of the operating room. And the dancing and full out choreographed routines with props! That’s for the privacy of her home not the operating room. That woman lacks affect, something’s off with her that she can’t see that her negligence crippled someone.

  • the guest

    Good lord.

  • the guest

    She doesn’t even have sympathy for the woman she crippled. That woman’s son has to bath and feed and dress her and the doctor sits on national tv and says she’s done nothing wrong?

  • Rmicu

    She is not a plastic surgeon and is not qualified to perform the procedures she was performing.

    I don't mind music in surgery but please be proficient in the surgery you're performing.

    Cheap plastic surgery by a dermatologist....Do your research, ask questions about residency and fellowship.
    Physicians who specialize, including plastic surgeons, do an additional 2-4 years training/ fellowship AFTER the residency program that all doctors complete after med school.....

  • Renee26

    Right just foolish to be doing all that ... I figured it was a theme or something. She's the dancing surgeon.... I only saw these clips though not any of her cutting while dancing....but I have seen Dr Miami dance with a lipo stick in hand while jabbing to the beat

  • Roxie Moxie

    RIGHT! When will we learn this though?? There are things my white coworkers do that I KNOW I can't do, so I don't. I know WE have to work 10x harder JUST to be on an even playing field.

  • supastar

    makes me scared to go under the knife. I can't trust these physicians.

  • Ajavee

    Exactly ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    a woman who suffered a permanent brain injury and requires full care for the rest of her life.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Yet she says she's done nothing wrong... I'm glad she lost her license. Maybe she can get a job as a home health aide...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now you know there will be some ignorant white folks crying they don't want no 'nigger doctor' and using this video as the reason why...

  • Logan Roberts

    So embarrassing when I watched her interview & she just don't seem to get it. Nothing like an old fool.

  • Kimberly King

    Chile .... Dr. Miami be dancing and all types of sh*t in his videos as well. But why was she doing these types of procedures when she’s only licensed to work on the skin ? Ugh girl

  • Roxie Moxie

    ...and could probably find her a** on Groupon. LMAO

  • Roxie Moxie

    *sigh*

    Damn. We ALREADY known for just dancing and bullsh*tting and not taking anything seriously in the first place, and here these two Tyler Perry House of Payne looking b*tches gone set us back. SMH

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!

  • THE Queen

    she is sick in the mind all of the work looks like freddy krueger did the work. people need to stop lying to other people and doing whatever they want, she wants to be famous so bad and that how atlanta dr's and so called black are here in atlanta. staright always looking like fools in the public.. thanks loon

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    EXactly the folks that go to docotrs who are not board certified cosmetic surgeons do it because the prices are cheaper folks love to keep up with the joneses without having the joneses money!! I don’t feel bad for a grown person who refuse to research who they allow to work on them.

  • Soon2BWife

    Coke head.

  • MzNicolle Serenity

    When I first watched her videos months back I said to myself how irresponsible and ministrel like. Who goes to school put so much into any medical/dental program long hours of studies, rigorous testing for licensure? To throw all that away by behaving in such an unethical manner- it's ridiculous you know how many hard working people wish they had the aptitude to be successful in such a program? SUCH A WASTE & DISSAPOINTMENT AT ONE TIME OUR PEOPLE DIDNT HAVE SUCH OPPORTUNITIES.

  • dontgetblocked

    Sigh! Take her damn license. If she can't take her job seriously...she doesn't deserve it. I like my doctors in a suit and professional. Why we got to always be ghetto?

  • dontgetblocked

    I know.

  • Quagsire!

    This is horrendous!!!!!

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Goes to show she’s not a real Dermatologist. Curious to know where did she get her license from out of the Cracker Jack box. Pathetic

  • Panther Charleston

    Doing this nonsense will get you fired at Popeye's, let alone the damn doctor's office. What kind of mid-life crisis, arrested development, missed my youth bs was she going through?!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's difficult for doctors to lie about their qualifications when you have Google and the Secretary of State website.

  • Renee26

    Those patients must not have checked and just took her word for it

  • MythCalledLove

    *Blink* looooong stare. Church finger my way the door.

  • J2PC

    Articles state that she had her videos on YTube. A few days ago she took them off of YTube. Some folks think coonin’ for attention or upClicks is cute. She was only posting possible evidence of her unprofessional behavior in a professional to be used against her should something go wrong. And things did go wrong. Can’t blame racism for allegedly scarring folks to look like a job done by freddy kuger as one woman described.

  • J2PC

    You would think that her friends, family & colleague would’ve taken her aside to warn her with insights. Now, her YTube vids starring Dr. bootay is being used against her as a professional performing surgeries.

  • J2PC

    It’s not we. Some professional folks acting a fool do not mean ALL Black folks will act a fool especially in a professional setting.

  • J2PC

    Well, some folks is Not everybody. A number of folks couldn’t care less about posting themselves or being some make-believe 15min star. ?

  • J2PC

    Being thirsty for upClicks & likes meant more to her than her professional license. Otherwise, why risk it over foolishness? smh

  • J2PC

    A number of Drs in Georgia do the same thing because their laxed medical laws. If you are a doctor, you too can perform surgeries there even if not trained to do so. ?

  • J2PC

    You’ll understand once you see the articles that include a news interview that also shows various YTube vids of her acting very unbecoming of a professional. Many victims have come forward since the news revealed that they are not alone. Women said that they are scarred horribly, somebody else said she caught MRSA & ended up worse off. Somebody else has one small butt implant with the other on a bigger size stuck in her cheeks. Crazy stuff being revealed. She’s done. The loss of her license is just a start of all of the problems she’s facing.

  • J2PC

    She went to UCLA for med school & did her 3yr residency at a top hospital where celebs go Cedar Sinai. Then it was onto the ATL Emory U Hospital for 4 more yrs to train to become a dermatology. She was certainly qualified for that. However, she was not trained at the next level to become a surgeon. But, no need to in Georgia with its relaxed medical laws where in Dr. can do surgery as long as they are some type of doctor. ?

  • J2PC

    Not true. This will be used against her. It’s a problem once other state medical boards know that other colleagues pulled your license. Maybe they’ll allow her to work on inmates as a primary care provider.

  • J2PC

    No they were not all Black. At least 2 victims in the news are White women. One said she was scarred as if freddy kreuger cut her. Another caught MRSA and ended worse off from all the cutting to stop the flesh eating bacteria from spreading. Surely, many others are lined up.

  • J2PC

    Why throw those defenseless old or disabled folks to the wolves? They deserve to be treated with dignity & respect too. ijs

  • J2PC

    But, some will bcus patients are lazy.

  • Ajavee

    They have her on video my thing is whoever was filming should be held liable as well.

  • Mister Fantastic

    If she focused on getting the pimples off people's arses instead of YASSA BOSS dancing whilst injecting fat, cement, and Gorilla Glue into them, she would STILL have a gig...

  • Kimberly King

    Oh lordt ! That’s terrible ! Hopefully, this situation will force GA to tighten up on their laws. Thank you for the info! Definitely didn’t know that.

  • CocoBabe88

    No wonder so many Atlantians are walking around with botched jobs.

  • EMILY POST

    Why is a Dermatologist doing plastic surgery ???? Better yet why would you go to a Dermatologist for your plastic surgery..... You trying to get F'd up.... She out there pretending like she is Dr. Miami and got caught up... What happend to just prescribing some pills or topical creme for acne and skin discolorations and doing some chemical peels.

  • JustB

    That explains the large amount of akward shaped peaches walking around in the south

  • J2PC

    The State of Georgia and its Medical Board tried to do just that a few times. But, a mafia of doctors in GA were angry saying this would restrict them & bite into their livelihood.

    Less restrictions and standards has allowed a number of doctors to flock to GA to multi-task medical procedures for additional $$$.

    Now, OB/GYNs, Emergency Room Doctors, primary care providers, etc. are all into providing dermatology or plastic surgery type stuff, treating diabetes, etc. -one size med school training fits all types of procedures there. Scary to say the least. lol
