The license hearing for "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor resumes Wednesday in Los Angeles with testimony from a final witness before closing arguments get under way.

The Medical Board of California is seeking to revoke or suspend Dr. Michael Kamrava's license to practice medicine, accusing him of gross negligence in his treatment of Suleman and two other patients.

Much of the testimony has centered on Kamrava implanting Suleman with 12 embryos, which resulted in the birth of her octuplets.

After Wednesday's hearing, the administrative law judge overseeing the case will draft an opinion and submit it to the Medical Board, which will make the final decision on whether Kamrava can legally keep practicing medicine in California.
