Posted By American Med Spa Association, Friday, October 22, 2021

Acting Attorney General Andrew J. Bruck announced that the State Board of Medical Examiners ("the Board") has temporarily suspended the license of an Essex County physician amid allegations that he has been traveling to dozens of offices in New Jersey and neighboring states, performing invasive aesthetic procedures with inadequate formal training and little regard for the health and safety of his patients.

According to Acting Attorney General Bruck, Dr. Muhammad A. Mirza, a board-certified internist from Cedar Grove, advertises and performs a variety of costly and invasive cosmetic enhancement services through his "Mirza Aesthetics" practice, which he operates primarily from rental spaces in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.

Acting Attorney General Bruck stated that traveling from office to office, carrying medical products in duffle bags, Mirza allegedly sees up to 30 patients daily in makeshift spaces with substandard protocols for medical recordkeeping, patient follow-up, and storage of medical supplies, including products that require refrigeration and strict temperature control.
