On October 10, 2018, Administrative Law Judge Roy W. Hewitt in a written ruling noted that "Dermatologist Boris Zaks, M.D., an expert reviewer for the investigative branch of the board was extremely credible. He was able to accurately testify as to what constitutes negligence, gross negligence, and incompetence. Unlike Dr. *****'s opinions, Dr. Zaks' conclusions were logical and consistent with common sense interpretations of the evidence - evidence that revealed, even to a lay person, that respondent's conduct as Medical Director of the clinic exhibited a lackadaisical attitude toward cosmetic/anti-aging treatments."
