Previous Hearings Flag: indicates a concern or additional information

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 03 Apr 1984

 In April 1984, Dr. Ross pleaded guilty to a charge of professional misconduct, as defined in 
 Ontario Regulation 448/80, in that he failed to maintain the standard of practice of the 
 profession, contrary to s. 27(21).  Dr. Ross also pleaded guilty to a charge 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 disgraceful, 
 dishonourable or unprofessional.  The Discipline Committee accepted these pleas and found Dr. Ross 
 guilty of professional misconduct.  Consequently, the Committee ordered that Dr. Ross' licence to 
 practice be suspended for a period of two months.  The Committee also ruled that for a period of 
 thirty months conditions be placed on Dr. Ross' licence, such that all new female potential 
 patients under the age of thirty years would be discussed with, and approved by, a specialist 
 psychiatrist who would in turn report to the Registrar at six-monthly intervals indicating an 
 acceptable standard of patient care.  During this period, Dr. Ross was also to waive his right of 
 confidentiality with his psychoanalyst, and direct him to submit a report to the Registrar at 
 intervals of six months, outlining his progress in therapy.  Failure to meet these conditions 
 would result in revocation of licence.  The Committee further ordered that these penalties be 
 recorded on the Register, and recommended that the Doctor's name be published.
