We’ve already heard that JOAN RIVERS’ doctor may have performed an unauthorized biopsy . . . one that ultimately killed her. But here’s something we DIDN’T know.
According to CNN, before did the operation, he TOOK A SELFIE with her while she was under the gas.
CNN basically has the same story we’ve already heard . . . Joan went to the Yorkville Endoscopy Clinic in Manhattan to find out what was causing her sore throat and hoarse voice.
A doctor named Lawrence Cohen performed the endoscopy. But when he was done, an ear, nose and throat doctor Joan had brought with her decided that he wanted to do a biopsy.
Investigators think Joan’s vocal cords swelled up during that procedure, cutting off the flow of oxygen to her lungs and causing a heart attack. Not only was Joan’s doctor not licensed to perform a biopsy at the clinic, but Joan never signed a consent form to have one in the first place.
Shortly after her death, the clinic announced that Dr. Cohen was no longer with them. He probably allowed Joan’s doctor to do the biopsy, which he obviously shouldn’t have done.
