A beloved city Correction captain died after undergoing plastic surgery at a Dominican clinic run by a doctor who once pleaded guilty to practicing unauthorized medicine.
Tandra Bowser-Williams promised her husband he would love the results of her procedure before she jetted off to Santo Domingo to go under the knife on May 13, her devastated spouse Curtis Williams told the Daily News.
But a day after the fat transfer surgery, Williams got a call from a nurse at the United Hearts Clinic, about a mile away from where she had the work done. His wife, a tough as nails correction officer, had suffered a small stroke, the nurse told him.
“They brought my wife out of the medically induced coma so she could unlock her phone, so that’s how she was able to get in touch with me,” Williams recalled.
As he wrapped his mind around what he was being told, Williams concern rose.
“I heard my wife in the background, and she was complaining about her stomach and her butt.”
The 49-year-old mother was dead before her husband arrived on the Caribbean island to be by her side.
