Strax Rejuvenation CEO Jeffry Davis Has Criminal Record

The CEO of the high-volume plastic surgery center in Lauderhill where a patient died last month is an ex-felon. Jeffry Davis was convicted of financial crimes related to his former company, which made replicas of vintage cars.

Long before he became head of Strax Rejuvenation and Aesthetics Institute, Davis was president of Classic Roadsters Inc. In 1995, he pleaded guilty to failing to pay taxes and making false statements to get a loan for the company. He served five months in federal prison. The Sun-Sentinel investigated Davis in 1998:

"Davis pleaded guilty in April 1995 to federal charges of making false statements to obtain a $250,000 loan for Classic Roadsters and failing to pay payroll taxes of about $280,000 owed by the firm, court records state."


From the car-kit business, Davis ventured into the lucrative world of outpatient plastic surgery. He became a marketing official at the Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, a high-volume surgery center that predated Strax.

After more than 20 lawsuits were filed against the Florida Center, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2004. That same year, Strax opened its doors in Lauderhill. Davis was one of the original co-owners, and two Florida Center surgeons, Roger Gordon and Jeffrey Hamm, began operating on patients at Strax.

When the Pulp called Strax today, Davis declined to comment. "He doesn't choose to speak with you," said the woman who answered his phone.

In the past eight years, five patients have died during or after surgery at Strax. Offering financing plans for patients who might otherwise find nips and tuck unaffordable, Strax doctors have performed more than 30,000 surgeries, according to the company's owners.

5 out of 30,000 happy customers.  That is far better than any hospital in Miami, but those are wonderful money losing operations, so they are great.  If you are a ugly cheap ass, who wants to be a cuter cheap ass, Strax was made for you.  Ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances.

Look up the number of doctors who are alcoholics, thieves, and addicts.  There are just as many of them as doctors as there are in the population.  But those clowns have the AMA and local quack society busily hiding their bad habits.  So what?

This is really bad for the hospital that the person who run all of this have the criminal record and this will give good point for people to don't trust on hospital.

George Levin and Jeffrey Davis.  Why aren't they behind bars?

That Strax isn't shut down is amazing.  Stories on the street are that  it's unprofessional, filty facility, owner is not a plastic surgeon (see above) and just nasty stuff goes on there.  It's like a chop shop.

There is something to be said for your comment.  I recall accidentally running across the list of impaired professionals who were required to give urine drops within an hour of being alerted, and almost every high profile physician in town was on that list.  That was an eye-opener.
