About this facility:
Dr. Shaban Simaee, who currently performs abortions at the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Brooklyn, was subject to a censure and reprimand and a charge of professional misconduct by the New York State Board for Professional Medical Conduct in 2005. Dr. Simaee did not contest the factual allegations of fraudulent practice: he intentionally forged three certificates of continuing medical education, which he submitted to Choices Women's Medical Center, Long Island City, N.Y., in connection with his credentialing for staff privileges. He was placed on probation by the New York State Board for Professional Medical Conduct for three years.

In a separate 2005 case, Simaee v. Levi, the New York Appellate Division, Second Department, reported that in June 2001, the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Brooklyn suspended Dr. Simaee's privileges 'due to his alleged unprofessional conduct and erratic behavior.'
