Judge James C. Chalfant said that revoking Kamrava's license was the proper ruling.
California medical officials revoked the license of Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor in July.
In less than eight years, Dr. Michael Kamrava repeatedly performed in vitro fertilization for Suleman, implanting her with 60 fresh embryos that resulted in a total of 14 children.
Though he implanted many embryos for each pregnancy, Kamrava always maintained his goal was to have single-baby pregnancies.
During a licensing hearing, an expert witness testified that Suelman's medical records show Kamrava implanted her with 12 embryos when she conceived her octuplets.
That's far in excess of national standards, which recommend no more than two embryos for a woman her age, the expert said.
Suleman's octuplets were born January 26, 2009, and have become the longest-living set of octuplets in the world.
Kamrava was also accused of negligence in two other cases in which a 48-year-old suffered complications after becoming pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.
The board's decision became effective July 1.
