Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 18 Aug 2021
Summary:

In a Notice of Hearing dated March 6, 2019, the College alleged that Dr. Gill failed to cooperate with the College’s request for an interview and to observe his practice, and failed to respond to a College investigator’s inquiries and to respond to the investigator’s questions. Dr. Gill disputed these allegations. Following a hearing on May 25-26, 2021, the Discipline Committee, now the Ontario Physicians and Surgeons Discipline Tribunal, issued its decision on August 18, 2021. The Tribunal found Dr. Gill failed to co-operate and failed to respond. This was an act or omission relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional and therefore was an act of professional misconduct.

The penalty hearing was held via videoconference on November 12, 2021. The parties were unable to agree on the length of suspension and the panel reserved its decision. On December 20, 2021, the OPSDT released its decision on penalty. The Tribunal ordered and directed:
a. Dr. Gill to attend before the Tribunal to be reprimanded;
b. The Registrar to suspend Dr. Gill’s certificate of registration for four months commencing from December 21, 2021, at 12:01 am; and
c. the Registrar to place the following term, condition and limitation on Dr. Gill’s certificate of registration commencing from December 21, 2021 at 12:01 am.
c.i. Dr. Gill will participate in the PROBE Ethics & Boundaries Program offered by the Centre for Personalized Education for Professionals, by receiving a passing evaluation or grade, without any condition or qualification. Dr. Gill will complete the PROBE program within six months of the date of this Order, and will provide proof to the College of his completion, including proof of registration and attendance and participant assessment reports, within one (1) month of completing it.

The OPSDT also ordered Dr. Gill to pay costs to the College of $31,110.

Appeal

On January 20, 2022, Dr. Gill filed a Notice of Appeal to the Divisional Court from the OPSDT’s decision. Pursuant to s.25(1) of the Statutory Powers Procedure Act, RSO 1990, c. S.22, the decision of the OPSDT is stayed pending the outcome of the appeal.

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 16 Apr 2019
Summary:

On April 16, 2019, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Gill has committed an act of professional misconduct in that: he has failed to maintain the standard of practice of the profession; and he has engaged in conduct or an act or omission relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional. The Committee also found that Dr. Gill is incompetent. The Committee released its reasons on February 25, 2020.

The Committee found that Dr. Gill failed to maintain the standard of practice in that his records were unreliable as a reflection of the nature and details of patient encounters and patients’ overall health status, and they were wholly inadequate to the provision of good quality patient care. Moreover, Dr. Gill’s care of patients with common, sometimes serious acute and chronic conditions was poor. He also failed to meet the standard of practice in that he did not adequately assess, monitor, and document those conditions, did not respond to important information in patient records from other sources, and exposed his patients to the risk of significant harm and injury.

The Committee found that Dr. Gill engaged in conduct or an act or omission that would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional tin that Dr. Gill submitted thousands of claims to OHIP for rapid strep tests that he did not perform. As well, of any rapid strep tests he may have conducted, many or all were without justification.

The Committee found that Dr. Gill is incompetent in that his professional care of patients displayed a lack of knowledge, skill or judgment of a nature or to an extent that demonstrates that he is unfit to continue to practise or that his practice should be restricted.

On December 14, 2020, the Committee heard submissions from both parties on penalty and costs.

On April 13, 2021, the Discipline Committee released its penalty and costs decision, in which it directed and ordered:
• Dr. Gill to attend before the panel to be reprimanded
• the Registrar to revoke Dr. Gill’s certificate of registration effective immediately
• Dr. Gill to pay costs to the College in the amount of $124,440 within 30 days of the date of the Order.

Appeal

On May 12, 2021, the College received Dr. Gill’s notice of appeal to the Superior Court of Justice (Divisional Court) from the decisions of the Discipline Committee with respect to procedural rulings, finding, penalty and costs.

On August 14, 2021 the College received a revised notice of appeal adding new grounds of appeal concerning the April 2019 hearing and the refusal of Dr. Gill’s request to re-open the hearing and adduce new evidence.

On January 5, 2022, the Divisional Court released its decision dismissing Dr. Gill’s appeal.
