Embroiled in Scandal Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon Dr. William Leighton Has Died
December 15, 2015
Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. William Leighton embroiled in medical malpractice claims brought before the Arizona Medical Board, died yesterday reportedly from complications from a pancreatic cancer Whipple procedure. This site previously wrote about the dangers of both Dr. William Leighton and how the Arizona Medical Board protects surgeons at the patient’s expense. The AZ Medical Board manipulates the minutes of the board meetings making patients falsely think their doctors have not received warning letters or sanctions when they type in a traditional search; but in fact, the minutes of the meetings are saved in PDF (picture) form, meaning a Google or Bing search would not flag the SEO necessary for patients to know all the facts regarding their surgeons. Patients actually have to figure out how to tediously and needlessly comb through line after line, month after month, year and year of the board minutes to accurate find the facts regarding doctors brought before the board.

Physician sanctions and warning letters, which can’t be found by typing in a surgeon’s name into traditional search engines or even the AZ Medical Board’s own search bar is, in part, why Dr. William Leighton was able to create a trail of disfigured patients essentially with the AZ Medical Board’s blessings. If patients of Dr. William Leighton’s, like Debi Koolick or Amy Ashcroft, as previously reported extensively by Wendy Halloran KPNX-TV Phoenix, could have easily found this information via traditional search engines, it could have prevented their injuries and many more.
