The ear, nose and throat specialist who was reportedly present when Joan Rivers’ throat procedure went horribly wrong has been identified by TMZ as Dr. Gwen Korovin.
A CNN report, however, about a doctor taking a selfie right before allegedly performing a biopsy on Joan’s vocal cords, did not identify the physician as Korovin.
“Extra” reached out to Dr. Korovin's office and were told they “are not commenting at this time.”
Korovin has a Hollywood A-list patient list, including Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Hugh Jackman and John Mayer. Her Facebook page has a photo of the physician in her office with pics of celeb patients lining the walls.
The doctor was also featured on a “CBS Sunday Morning” segment regarding Mayer’s vocal cord issues in 2013.
Korovin has been called Broadway's vocal hero for being able to accommodate her famous patients and treat them on-site, especially when they are performing.
