Decision Date: 13 May 2019

On May 13, 2019, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Koma Diraywish Israel committed 
an act of professional misconduct in that he engaged in acts or omissions relevant to the practice 
of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by 
members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional, pursuant to paragraph 1(1)33 of 
Ontario regulation 856/93 made under the Medicine Act, 1991. 
Dr. Koma Diryawish Israel (“Dr. Israel”) is a 64-year-old general physician who practices in 
Hamilton, Ontario.  He received his certificate of registration authorizing independent practice in 
Dr. Israel was Patient A’s family doctor between approximately November 2013 and May 2017.   
During an appointment with Patient A, Dr. Israel told Patient A that a woman needs a man and 
that maybe her problem was that she did not have a husband or boyfriend. Dr. Israel also asked 
Patient A, in an inappropriate and unprofessional manner, whether she was attaining sexual 
satisfaction by masturbating. 
Dr. Israel has no previous history before the Discipline Committee. 
On May 13, 2019, the Discipline Committee ordered and directed that: 
-  the Registrar suspend Dr. Israel’s certificate of registration for a period of one (1) month, 
   commencing from May 14, 2019 at 12:01 a.m.

         Considerations for Physicians Who Cease to Practise, Take an Extended Leave of 
         Absence or Close Their Practice Due to Relocation”, a copy of which is attached at 
         Schedule “A” to this Order; and 
   o     Dr. Israel will participate in and unconditionally pass the PROBE Ethics & 
         Boundaries Program offered by the Centre for Personalized Education for 
         Professionals, with a report or reports to be provided by the provider to the College 
         regarding Dr. Israel’s progress and compliance. Dr. Israel will complete this 
         requirement within 6 months of the date of this Order.

      date of this Order.
