A plastic surgery clinic in San Jose, California, was shut down after it was accused of discriminating against customers by charging them for surgery.
The center, Plastic Surgery for Women and the Gender Dysphoria Association of San Jose (PDWA), says it offers a wide range of services, including surgery, plastic surgery, and reconstructive surgery.
The center also operates a “fitness center,” which is a private facility for people with health concerns and other issues.
But the Center for Plastic Surgery in Santa Clara, California is also on the list, and it is also accused of treating women differently than men.
“The center’s operations are very expensive,” said Rachel Miller, a senior attorney with the nonprofit group Equality California.
“I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.
It’s really a very troubling situation.”
According to a lawsuit filed last week in federal court, the Center closed last month after the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office announced that it was investigating complaints about its operations.
The DA’s office said it was looking into whether the center discriminated against women and other minorities.
In the lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of two women, the women said they received referrals for the center from a friend, who recommended it to them after she saw the center’s services.
The women said in their complaint that they had to pay up to $1,000 to have a “surgical procedure” done by a plastic surgeon, with a total cost of more than $1.4 million.
The women also alleged that the center denied them appointments, refused to provide them with a list of specialists, and charged them higher fees.
The Center for Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Surgery at the San Jose City College of Medicine also was named in the lawsuit.
The city of San José, the state of California, and the California Department of Health and Human Services have all confirmed that the hospital has closed.
The lawsuit alleges that the women’s friend also recommended the center to another friend, but that she was denied an appointment because the friend had a chronic medical condition.
In a statement, the PDWA said that it “has never discriminated on the basis of gender, race, religion, disability, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, gender expression, or disability status.”
“Our goal is to offer a safe and comfortable place for all our patients to come in for surgery,” the PDWAs statement said.
“We have zero tolerance for discrimination, including harassment of anyone who comes to us with a concern about our care.”
The center is owned by an affiliate of the U.S. Plastic Surgeons Association, which says that it has a policy of treating people equally.
“We want to be transparent about our practice and the fact that we have a strong and diverse team of doctors and staff,” said Sarah Rizzuto, the organization’s president.
“The Center does not discriminate against anyone and has always been open to hearing from any patient who has any concerns.”
