Administrative Law Judge Daniel Juarez has found Dr. Michael Kamrava committed gross and repeated negligence in his care for Octomom Nadya Suleman of La Habra--but not so much that the Beverly Hills fertility doctor should lose his state license to practice medicine.

Juarez's recommendation is not binding; the California Medical Board can still disagree with the judge's finding and strip Kamrava of his license.

At the center of the medical board probe are: Kamrava's treatment of Suleman, a single mother who conceived all 14 of her children through his care; a 48-year-old who suffered complications after becoming pregnant with quadruplets; and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.

Juarez found no lack of qualification, ability or fitness on Kamrava's part based on the evidence presented.

The judge added he suspects the doctor will not-so-aggressively treat another patient given the national exposure of the Octomom case, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Kamrava used 16 of Suleman's eggs to create 14 embryos before implanting a dozen of them in July 2008.

The judge recommended Kamrava be allowed to continue practicing while undergoing monitoring and participating in ethics and medical-training courses.

The medical board is expected to consider the recommendation at a Thursday meeting in Burlingame.

The octuplets, who were born nine weeks premature, remain the world's longest-living group that size.
