Stover license revoked



(KPUA) A Big Island oral and cosmetic surgeon facing 27 formal complaints has seen his last patients in Hawai`i. The Hawai`i Medical Board on Thursday, voted 7- 0 with one abstention in favor of an agreement with Dr. John Stover, whereby Stover voluntarily revoked his licenses and agreed not to conduct or supervise any medical or dental procedures ever again in the islands. 

The license revocation will also go into the National Practitioner Data Bank, so if he applies for a license in any other state in the country Hawai`i's punishment will show up. 

The complaints against Stover include the death of Curtis Wagasky after having a tooth removed and Kristen Tavares of Hilo, who went into a coma after having her wisdom teeth pulled.
