Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 22 Oct 2020
Summary:

On October 22, 2020, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. John Taliano committed 
 an act of professional misconduct, in that he engaged in sexual abuse of a patient; and 
engaged in conduct or an act or omission relevant to the practice of medicine that, 
having regard to all of the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as 
disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional.    
 Patient A 
  
 The Committee found that Dr. Taliano engaged in professional misconduct in that he 
 sexually abused Patient A by inappropriately touching his testicles and penis under the 
 guise of a medical examination, and that this also constitutes disgraceful, 
 dishonourable or unprofessional conduct. 
  
 The Committee also found that Dr. Taliano engaged in disgraceful, dishonourable or 
unprofessional conduct by telling Patient “A” to “Drop his pants”, and by insisting on 
 examining Patient A despite his protestations and refusal of a genital examination. 
  
 Witness B 
  
 The Committee found that Dr. Taliano engaged in disgraceful, dishonourable or 
 unprofessional conduct by entering the shower of Witness B while naked and touching 
 Witness B’s penis, and by making a comment regarding Witness B's penis size in the 
 presence of others. 
 
On January 11, 2021, the Committee heard submissions from both parties on penalty 
and costs.  
 
On April 15, 2021, the Discipline Committee released its penalty and costs decision, in 
which it directed and ordered: 
    1. The Registrar shall revoke Dr. Taliano’s certificate of registration effective 
       immediately; 
    2. Dr. Taliano shall appear before the panel to be reprimanded within 30 days of the 
       date this order becomes final; 
    3. Dr. Taliano shall comply with the College’s Policy, “Closing a Medical Practice”; 
    4. Dr. Taliano shall reimburse the College for funding provided to patients under the 
       program required under s. 85.7 of the Code, and shall post an irrevocable letter of 
       credit or other security acceptable to the College to guarantee payment of such 
       amounts within 30 days of the date this order becomes final, in the amount of 
       $17,370; and 
    5. Dr. Taliano shall pay costs of $124,440 to the College within 30 days. 
  

 Appeal 

 On May 17, 2021, Dr. Taliano appealed the Discipline Committee’s October 22, 2020 decision 
 finding that Dr. Taliano committed an act of professional misconduct and the Committee’s April 
 15, 2021 penalty decision to the Divisional Court. Pursuant to section 71 of the Health 
Professions Procedural Code, which is Schedule 2 to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 
1991, S.O. 1991, c. 18, an order made by a panel of the Discipline Committee directing the 
Registrar to revoke a member’s certificate of registration takes effect immediately, despite any 
appeal, where the Committee found that the member committed sexual abuse.
