California Medical Board Issues Accusation against Psychiatrist Kamal Bijanpour; Sentenced on Federal Firearms Charge

November 16, 2021

On March 19, 2021, Long Beach, California psychiatrist Kamal Bijanpour, had accusations brought against him by the Medical Board of California. 

The Board’s document stated that following a psychiatric evaluation, Dr. Bijanpout was determined to be unable to safely practice medicine due a mental disorder. The evaluator concluded that Dr. Bijanpour must follow certain treatment recommendations in order to be safe to practice medicine.

Previously, in 2019, search warrants were executed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on his residences and vehicle. They seized firearm suppressors (silencers), assault weapons, and shotguns. Methamphetamines were also found on the premises, requiring seizure of the firearms. Bijanpour was charged with numerous federal drug and firearms possession charges. On March 2, 2021, he pleaded guilty to single charge of Causing Illegal Importation of Firearms, to which he was sentenced October 4, 2021 to 18 months in prison.
