State investigators raid the offices of Dr. Jason Helliwell

BAKERSFIELD, Calif - There could be new problems facing a controversial Bakersfield doctor.

There are signs posted on Advanced Women's Health Center stating the facility is temporarily closed.

That’s the office of Dr. Jason Helliwell.

State investigators are at the offices, but haven't said what they're looking for.

The Kern County District Attorney's office says this isn't the only location being investigated.

They say there are multiple doctors, facilities and locations in and out of Ken County related to this search.

The office faced legal issues recently. In April, Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance Company and Self-Insured Schools of California filed a fraud case against Advanced Women's Health Center.

We contacted lawyers representing both sides, but no one immediately responded to our request for comment.

The State Department of Insurance said they didn't have any information at this time. 

In another case filed in August, Dr. Jason Helliwell is accused of having a sexual relationship with a patient who claims Helliwell botched a breast augmentation.
