"The Dancing Doctor" has agreed to give up her medical license for at least two-and-a-half years, according to an agreement filed Friday with the Georgia Composite Medical Board.

The consent order signed by Windell Boutte, a board-certified dermatologist, says that her license to practice medicine in Georgia is indefinitely suspended, but after two-and-a-half years she can petition to have the suspension lifted.

She cannot use the title "doctor" or engage in the practice of medicine during her suspension, the document says, and will drop her own court case in which she seeks a temporary restraining order.

CNN has attempted to reach Boutte for comment on the agreement.

The consent order doesn't mention the now-deleted YouTube videos of Boutte during medical procedures. In one video, she dances with surgical instruments in both hands and leans leans over a patient's half-bare buttocks while rapping her own lyrics to Migos' "Bad and Boujee."

The consent order, instead, describes seven instances of questionable treatment between 2014 and 2018 for patients who underwent procedures such as liposuction, fat transfer or breast augmentation.

CNN's sister network, HNL, found five malpractice lawsuits pending against Boutte. She has reached four settlements. HLN has not found judgments decided against her, but female patients with lawsuits claim they've suffered infections, disfigurement, even brain damage following procedures at Boutte's hand.

On June 7, the day after HLN's interview, the Georgia Composite Medical Board suspended Boutte's license to practice medicine, citing allegations of malpractice regarding her treatment of seven patients.

In an interview with HNL, Boutte defended her music videos.

In most instances, patients chose the tunes for the clips, which lasted 30 to 60 seconds, and gave Boutte direction on when to play certain parts of the songs, Boutte said. The doctor, whose practice is in Lilburn, Georgia, said she also used the music videos as educational tools.

"These were all consented videos. They were staged, they were planned," Boutte said.

CNN's Darran Simon and Debra Goldschmidt contributed to this report.
