The Private Medical Professionals Association,says Dr. Dominic Obeng Andoh, of Obengfo Hospital is a genuine and qualified doctor.
Dr Obeng Andoh is facing a murder charge after the deputy CEO of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP), Stacy Offei –Darko, died at his health facility on May 21, 2018 while undergoing a Liposuction surgery.
However, the Private Medical Professionals Association say the assertion that the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre known as Obengfo Hospital, owned by Dr. Dominic Obeng Andoh, was not licensed to operate, is not accurate.
The President of the Association, Dr. Isaac Morrison, told Atinka Midday News Tuesday that, Dr. Obeng Andoh has been practicing for the past 20 years as a doctor and is a product of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Medical School where he completed in 1997.
Dr. Morrison vouched for his colleague’s professional integrity adding that Dr. Obeng Andoh was put on the permanent register of practitioners by the Medical and Dental Council in 2000 after completing his house job.
“…First of all , Dr Andoh is not a quack doctor; he worked at the Bartor and other hospitals in the country before opening his own medical facility, Obengfo Clinic at Mataheko in 2003,” Dr. Morrision said.
Dr. Morrison rejected claims that the association is defending Dr Andoh because he is one of their own, adding that the facts speak for themselves. He said the fact that a patient has his or her life, does not mean the doctor is a bad doctor.
Touching on Stacy Ofei-Darko’s death, Dr Morrison said the incident was unfortunate and regrettable but quickly pointed out that “patients could die when the go for treatment or some hospital procedures. “But this does not mean the doctors who supervised the procedures are bad,” he argued.
He recalled an incident in 2017 where a healthy-looking lady went to one of the big public hospitals for a routine medical procedure but never came back.
He maintained that Dr. Obeng is not a quack doctor contrary to claims in the media and urged the public to wait for judicial process initiated against their colleague.
Meanwhile hospital documents indicate that the late Stacy Offei-Darko, deputy CEO of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP) had been frequenting the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre known as Obengfo Hospital since 2014.
According to the documents reveal the late NEIP Deputy Boss has been attending the Obenfo hospital for regular checks up in preparation towards her first liposuction surgery which finally took place in 2017. The latest revelation confirms that Stacy did go to the hospital for malaria treatment as her mother, Nana Akosua Anima, suggested during several radio interviews after her daughter’s demise.
