(ii) Dr. Waxman s certificate of registration will be revoked, such revocation to take effect immediately;
(iii) Dr. Waxman will pay costs to the College in the amount of $2,500.00;
(iv) Dr. Waxman will reimburse the College for any amount the College may pay, up to a maximum of $10,000 for funding for therapy and counseling for one of the patients (Patient A) under section 85.7 of the Health Professions Procedural Code.

On June 9, 2008, the Discipline Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario considered the application for reinstatement by Dr. Mark Lawrence Waxman, pursuant to Section 72 of the Health Professions Procedural Code, and directed the Registrar to issue a certificate of registration to the applicant, Dr. Mark Lawrence Waxman, subject to the following terms and conditions:

certificate of registration.
(iii) Dr. Waxman will continue to receive treatment from Dr. X, or any other certified psychiatrist acceptable to the College who will provide reports to the College on a quarterly basis for a period of five (5) years from the date of this Order. Thereafter, Dr. Waxman will continue to receive treatment from a psychiatrist on an ongoing basis who will report to the College if he or she has concerns as to Dr. Waxman s fitness to continue in practice. The frequency of treatment shall be at the discretion of the treating psychiatrist but not less than quarterly. Dr. Waxman will comply with all treatment recommendations of his treating psychiatrist.
(iv) Dr. Waxman will enter into a five (5) year contract with the Physician Health Program (that is, until 2013).
(v) Dr. Waxman will practice in a group setting, under the supervision of a practice monitor acceptable to the College, who will execute an undertaking and who will report to the College on a quarterly basis.
(vi) In the event that any of the reports contemplated by this Order are not received in accordance with the time frame specified and if such failure is not rectified within thirty (30) days of notice of the non-compliance being given to Dr. Waxman, the Registrar may suspend his certificate of registration until the report(s) is received.
