Yesterday, an Ohio plastic surgeon, Katharine Grawe—who accumulated nearly 15 million likes by livestreaming operations on TikTok as "Doctor Roxy"—was permanently banned from practicing medicine and surgery in Ohio.

The decision came following a November 2022 suspension temporarily barring Grawe from seeing patients after the State Medical Board of Ohio reviewed "clear and convincing evidence" from multiple patients who were harmed during Grawe's livestreamed surgeries. The board decided to suspend Grawe's license, saying that her "continued practice presents a danger of immediate and serious harm to the public."

    Right, counting death certificates is totally flawed.

    People are constantly mentioning to the hospital, falsely, that the injury was related to getting shot because we all know how much easier that makes everything!

    You do have something of a point. When the FBI says that x number of people died, they can point to x number of death certificates. Gun Violence Archive only has news articles to cite, which may or may not be accurate. GVA never actually looks at anything like a factual document.
