Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 11 Dec 2012

 On December 11, 2012, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Rivlin committed an act of 
 professional misconduct, in that he has been found guilty of an offence that is relevant to his 
 suitability to practise, and has engaged in disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct. 
 Dr. Rivlin admitted to the allegations. 

On or about December 21, 2010, Dr. Rivlin pleaded guilty 
 in the Ontario Court of Justice to one count of fraud over $5,000 and one count of possession of a 
 prohibited weapon with ammunition. Convictions were entered on the basis of Dr. Rivlin's 
 admissions to fraudulently billing OHIP in the amount of $168,794.21 between September of 2000 and 
 February of 2008, while he was out of the country. He also admitted to illegally possessing a 
 prohibited firearm and ammunition in a locked safe at his residence, which he had, at a patient's 
 request, agreed to store in his safe after the patient inadvertently left it in his office, until 
 the patient's return to Canada from the United States. It was seized by police during the 
 execution of the search warrant in March of 2008. 

In the criminal proceedings, Dr. Rivlin was 
 given a ninemonth conditional sentence with three months house arrest, followed by a twoyear term 
 of probation. He was also prohibited from billing OHIP for the duration of his conditional 
 sentence and probation. At the time of his guilty plea and sentencing, Dr. Rivlin made restitution 
 to OHIP. 

The Discipline Committee ordered a public reprimand, a 12month suspension of Dr. 
 Rivlin's certificate of registration and costs of $3,650.
