If you are a doctor, dentist, psychologist, optometrist, or any other healthcare practitioner being investigated by your College, or a hospital, as a result of a complaint, or based upon an anonymous tip, or facing the loss of your hospital privileges, or dealing with a health law issue, it’s important to work with a skilled lawyer who is intimately familiar with the Regulated Health Professions Act, and the profession-specific legislation under which your health profession in Ontario is governed. You need someone who knows how health Colleges work, and who is conversant with the provincial and federal laws that govern health care issues in Ontario and across the country. You need someone who is adept at navigating through the various regulations where health governance and the law intersect.
