Previous Hearings Flag: indicates a concern or additional information

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 19 Jul 2019
Summary:

On July 19, 2019, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Wameed Ateyah committed 
 an act of professional misconduct in that he has failed to maintain the standard of 
 practice of the profession. 

 On a morning of a date in October 2016, Patient A attended Dr. Ateyah’s office as a 
 walk-in patient. She complained of back pain and some vaginal itchiness. Dr. Ateyah 
 examined Patient A. 

 The Committee found that Dr. Ateyah did not clearly communicate to Patient A in 
 advance the type of examination he intended to perform or the reasons for the 
 examination. In the result, Patient A was confused and did not understand what Dr. 
 Ateyah was doing or why he was doing it during the initial examination on the 
 examination table. 

 The Committee found that Dr. Ateyah failed to maintain the standard of practice of the 
 profession in not clearly explaining to Patient A the type of examination he intended to 
 conduct before embarking on the examination, and the reasons for conducting that 
 examination. 

 On October 7, 2019, the Committee heard submissions on penalty. The Committee 
 reserved its penalty decision. 

 On December 23, 2019, the Committee released its penalty decision: 

The Committee orders and directs on the matter of penalty and costs that:  

1.    The Registrar suspend Dr. Ateyah’s certificate of registration for a period of two months, 
commencing on January 6, 2020 at 12:01 a.m;  

2.    The Registrar place the following terms, conditions or limitations on Dr. Ateyah’s 
certificate of registration: 

(i)   Dr. Ateyah shall comply with the College Policy “Closing a Medical Practice”, a copy of 
which is attached to this Order; 

(ii)  Dr. Ateyah will participate in the Saegis Successful Patient Interactions Course by 
receiving a passing evaluation or grade, without any conditions or qualification. Dr. Ateyah will 
complete the Saegis course within 6 months of the date of this Order and will provide proof to 
the College of his completion, including proof of registration and attendance and participant 
assessment reports, within one (1) month of completing it.  

3.    Dr. Ateyah shall appear before the Committee to be reprimanded; and
