I would urge any attractive females to avoid Dr. Von Maur's office.

I am going through a ruptured silicone implant situation, which is not pleasant. In the course of this nightmare, I learned that Dr. Von Maur has 20 malpractice suits against him. If I had know that prior to my surgery I would have never trusted him. You can go to http://www.occourts.org/online-services/case-access/ and click on Civil Case & Document Access, then accept the terms, then there are 3 tabs, click Person Search, in Last Name, type "Von Maur" in first name type "Burr" then put in the captcha code, and it will give you all of the fraud, negligence and malpractice cases (20 in total) for Dr. Burr Von Maur. You can purchase the documents if you want to read the charges against him.

He pursued me extensively while I was his patient. Most upsetting, was the first appointment after my surgery where I could drive to the office myself. Dr. Von Maur called me from his home. He told me that he had to call in sick. He said he was so upset he couldn't see me, and asked if I would consider coming to his home. I refused. There were several more incidents, all which are being noted in the medical board investigation. I learned later that he had a girlfriend the entire time. I am working on a medical board investigation, since I think my statute of limitations to sue him ran out last year. Note that you have 3 years for a malpractice suit. Your suit has to be within 1 year of the discovery (so, for me, the discovery would be a RUPTURED SILICONE IMPLANT, that was discovered last Friday, but it has to be within 3 years of the procedure, so I am out of luck on a lawsuit. If you are going through the same situation, note that you have 7 years to submit a medical board investigation, which could end up with criminal charges for the Doctor from the Attorney General.

There are many qualified plastic surgeons in Orange County. I urge any of you, if you are ladies, to seek a female plastic surgeon. I think for men like Burr Von Maur, it is too tempting when a fragile, attractive, insecure woman comes into his office. He is a sexual predator, and I am submitting a medical board investigation against him.

I am hoping that other women who have had the same experience as me will come forward, and we can all submit our experiences in one voice.

Please email me at gumbun_2000@yahoo.com if you want to compare notes.

Thanks, and good luck. I wish I had never had plastic surgery. Now it looks like I have a serious, life-threatening inflammatory disease from the silicone that has been seeping into my tissues for nearly a year now.
