A Brooklyn surgeon who stars on the new ABC series "Hooking Up (search)" has been probed by two states for her medical practices, The Post has learned.
Dr. Lisa Aptaker (search), 37, was the subject of a November 2004 administrative hearing by the Florida Department of Health that recommended she be denied a medical license because she "knowingly misrepresented and concealed material facts on her licensure application," legal documents show.
Aptaker is a licensed surgeon in New York specializing in gynecology.
Army documents also show that she was discharged "under honorable conditions" for "failure to complete [a] course of instruction."
The state of Florida claimed she never disclosed to them that she had been under investigation in 2003 by the New York state Department of Health.
New York health officials, who are barred by law from discussing cases that have not resulted in formal action against doctors, yesterday declined to comment.
Aptaker claims the reason she was booted from the Army was because they had found out she had filmed episodes of "Hooking Up"
The ABC News documentary series — which follows the online-dating experiences of 11 New York women, including Aptaker — was filmed last year before she enlisted.
Aptaker said she was handcuffed and assaulted by military police while being escorted off her Texas military base.
An Army spokesman cited the Federal Privacy Act and declined to comment on the specifics surrounding her allegations or dismissal.
"Ms. Aptaker had no obligation to report any of this to the Army because Florida has not taken any action against and her New York license is in good standing," said her lawyer, Mark Zaid.
He said Aptaker is not currently investigation in New York.
"The Army is using this as an after-the-fact justification to cover up its own misconduct," he said.
