Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 23 Jan 2012
Summary:

On January 23, 2012, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Clement Ka-Chun Yeung 
committed an act of professional misconduct, in that he has been found guilty of an offence that 
is relevant to his suitability to practice, and in that he engaged in conduct or an act or omission 
relevant to the practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would 
reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional. 
 
In 2007, Dr. Yeung disclosed to the College that he had been convicted in the State of Hawaii of 
charges relating to the dispensing of controlled substances to an undercover agent posing as a 
patient.  
 
On August 30, 2007, Dr. Yeung plead guilty to knowingly and intentionally distributing and 
dispensing outside the course of professional medical practice and not for a legitimate medical 
purpose approximately 1,400 milligrams of Oxycodone on June 14, 2002 and 800 milligrams of 
Oxycodone on June 21, 2002, in the District of Hawaii.  
 
On both occasions, Dr. Yeung met with an undercover DEA agent, who was known to Dr. Yeung 
as his patient, Mr. X. Based on his assessment over the course of 20 medical visits over a 
ten-month period, Dr. Yeung treated Mr. X for chronic back pain with prescription narcotic 
medication. During the course of treatment, Dr. Yeung took steps to decrease the risks associated 
with prescribing narcotic medication. On the two occasions in June 2002, Dr. Yeung met Mr. X 
in a parking lot and prescribed Oxycodone. Mr. X paid Dr. Yeung in cash, since he did not have 
Health Insurance. Dr. Yeung did not profit beyond receiving money for medical services 
rendered to Mr. X. 
 
Dr. Yeung provided written prescriptions to Mr. X for dosages and quantities that are within a 
reasonable range for a patient suffering with chronic back pain.  
 
Dr. Yeung was found guilty of the two counts noted above, and the sentence imposed by the 
court in Hawaii included that Dr. Yeung: be imprisoned for one year and one day; pay a 
$10,000.00 fine within 14 days; pay a $200.00 assessment fee; submit to removal proceedings, 
including deportation or exclusion, as required by the Department of Homeland Security; and 
surrender his Drug Enforcement Administration controlled substance registration. 
 
Dr. Yeung was incarcerated in Hawaii from January 11, 2008 to November 24, 2008 and was 
immediately deported from the United States at the conclusion of his incarceration. Dr. Yeung 
returned to Ontario in December 2008 where he resided until April 2009, at which time he 
moved to Hong Kong. Dr. Yeung held an unrestricted certificate of registration in Ontario during 
that period, but elected not to practice medicine in Ontario until the issues surrounding his 
criminal conviction in Hawaii could be addressed by the College.  
 
The Discipline Committee ordered and directed that: 
 
1.    Dr. Yeung appear before the panel to be reprimanded. 
 
2.    the Registrar suspend Dr. Yeung's certificate of registration for a period of six (6) months, 
      to commence January 23, 2012.  
 
3.    the Registrar place the following terms, conditions and limitations on Dr. Yeung's 
      certificate of registration: 
      (i)   that Dr. Yeung shall successfully complete the College's Physician's Prescribing 
            Skills course and shall successfully complete an educational program in Ethics, 
            both no later than one (1) year from the date he commences practice in Ontario; 
      (ii)  that Dr. Yeung shall keep a log of all Narcotics Drugs and Narcotic Preparations 
            prescribed for a period of one (1) year ("Narcotics Log") from the date he 
            commences practice in Ontario;   
      (iii) that Dr. Yeung shall practice under a Clinical Supervisor acceptable to the College 
            for a period of one (1) year from the date he commences practice in Ontario; such 
            supervision shall take place in a setting(s) which is acceptable to the College, and 
            shall consist of, at minimum, monthly reviews of patient charts and of the 
            Narcotics Log for the first three (3) months; and, thereafter, at the discretion of the 
            Clinical Supervisor, quarterly reviews with quarterly reporting to the College 
            throughout the supervision period; and 
      (iv)  that Dr. Yeung will undergo an assessment of his practice, including his narcotics 
            prescribing, approximately one (1) year after the completion of the term of clinical 
            supervision set out in paragraph 3(iii). 
 
4.    Dr. Yeung pay costs to the College in the amount of $3,650 within thirty (30) days from 
      the date of this Order.
