A surgeon in California has been fired after a two-year investigation proved he committed a wide range of inappropriate acts with patients while under anesthesia.

Dr. Louis Kwong, of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, was the reason why the hospital was sued last year. An investigation proved that Kwong “regularly gawked at the genitalia of anesthetized patients”.

Kwong, according to his coworkers, repeatedly “looked under the surgical covers of Black males who were under anesthesia and discussed the ‘genitals of the day’”.

According to a report from FOX 8, Kwong also made more than $700,000 from a company that makes joint replacements, though he never reported it to the county. Kwong’s usage of their products was a conflict of interest for the hospital.

From FOX 8:

Despite the complaints, which date back over a decade, Kwong’s alleged misbehavior wasn’t “officially reported” until 2021. That comes despite NBC News reporting on text messages that show “in 2016 the hospital’s CEO confirmed that the allegations against Kwong were ‘very serious’ and that the facility’s risk management unit was aware and involved.”

Also, according to the report, Kwong is appealing his firing and denying the allegations. He was also simply placed on paid administrative leave and had accumulated more than $1 million in additional pay before his firing was official.
