Decision Date: 19 Sep 1989

 In September 1989, Dr. Town pleaded guilty to a charge of professional misconduct, as defined in 
 Ontario Regulation 448/80, as amended, in that he committed sexual impropriety with a patient, 
 contrary to s. 27(29); and 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, contrary to s. 27(32).  The Discipline Committee 
 accepted this plea and found Dr. Town guilty of professional misconduct.  The Committee also 
 accepted a joint submission as to penalty, and consequently ordered that Dr. Town's licence to 
 practice be revoked.
