Wow..... practicing without a license.  He gets a $1,000 fine; and can get his license back within 12 months.  That will show him.  How much does he earn a year?  Glad that he is not one of the physicians that I depend on.  He will pay the fine, and the license fee.  He will be back in the office within 3 months.

My friend the real scandals never even get reported to Professional Regulation in this town.  Alcoholic doctors at both major hospitals who are drunk while on call, surgeons shagging their patients, sham surgeries, medicare fraud, etc, etc.  These are all routinely covered up and just like pedophile priests the offending professionals are shuffled around with the priority being maintaining the hospital's reputation.

I learn something every day.  Thanks for the information.  I have only been concerned if they could understand my accent when I see them.  I usually have my wife with me in case I am misunderstood.  I guess there are other things that I should be concerned about.

If you are ever ill enough to be in the hospital your wife will need to come along and monitor you for the nurses.  Families are now the nurses eyes and ears.  The hospitals understaff and do not provide generous nurse to patient ratio.  The nurses are unable to do a good job once they have more than 4 patients to look after.  In California where the nurses are unionized this quality issue has been a major difficulty despite scientific study demonstrating poor outcomes the higher the nurse:patient ratio goes.  This town has successfully blocked any unionization of the nurses.
