UPDATE: Hospital strips surgeon's credential off sign, website

Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 7:45 pm News Flash Archive

The Greenwood Leflore Hospital (GLH) stripped off a surgeon's disputed credentials from its sign and website less than 8 hours after The Taxpayers Channel first broke the story of the dispute at 10:30 this morning.

Dr. Alain Domkam, a surgeon employed by the hospital, has claimed as late as Monday evening that he is a Fellow of the prestigious American College of Surgeons. The College claims that he is not, and informed The Taxpayers Channel last Friday that it had begun the process of requiring Dr. Domkam to remove the title from his name and qualification list.

This morning, we reported the conflicting claims of Dr. Domkam and the College, and provided photographic evidence that both the hospital clinic sign and the GLH website described Domkam as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).

Our original article, with pictures and quotes, may be seen here: Greenwood Surgeon's Credentials Questioned.

Hospital CFO and acting administrator Dawne Holmes never responded to our requests for comment.

But as of close of business day, GLH had painted out the FACS title from Dr. Domkam's name on the clinic sign, and had completely removed all references to his being an FACS from its website.
