Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 23 Apr 1993

In April 1993, Dr. Orbeck pleaded guilty to a charge of professional misconduct for failing to provide within a reasonable time and without cause a report requested by a patient(s authorized agent in respect of an examination and treatment as defined in s.27(27) of Ontario Regulation 448/80. The Discipline Committee accepted Dr. Orbeck(s guilty plea, and found him guilty of professional misconduct, as defined in s. 27(27), 448/80. Furthermore, the Discipline Committee found Dr. Orbeck guilty of professional misconduct in that he engaged in conduct or an act relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as unprofessional as defined in s.27(32) of Ontario Regulation 448/80. The Committee imposed the following penalty:

1. Dr. Orbeck be reprimanded, with the fact of the reprimand to be recorded on the Register;

2. Dr. Orbeck be fined the maximum amount of $5,000;

3. The imposition of the fine be suspended provided Dr. Orbeck is not proven guilty of professional misconduct for failing to provide a report to a patient or to a patient(s representative or for unprofessional conduct related to a failure to cooperate with the College, within a five year period from the date that this order becomes final; and

4. Should such a finding result in the suspension of this fine being vacated, failure to pay shall result in the Registrar suspending Dr. Orbeck(s licence to practise medicine until such time as the fine is paid.

Dr. Orbeck waived his right to appeal and the reprimand was administered.
