A warm welcome to you!
After several months absence, I was pleased to be available to consult with you, by appointment, either virtually or in your home.
However on January 27 (during the epic truck convoy) the CPSO suspended my licence to practice medicine.
At this moment, I cannot determine how long this will last nor in what way I may continue to support you. I will look for a way, so please check in here from time to time.
All links to me will be disabled on this site.
Please look for the healing and personal development this moment presents.

The CPSO’s Reasons for limiting my licence and ultimately for suspending my licence to practice medicine.
All of what is avilable on the link below was in the public record and was taken directly from the College’s public website regarding my restrictions. The following explanation puts the legal language into plain English.
During the Autumn of 2021 I issued many patients with Certificates of Exemption regarding mask use and for immunization as well as certain medications.
The CPSO regarded these actions as a risk to public safety and imposed a number of conditions on me prohibiting me from continuing to do so.
Amongst these conditions was an Order to disclose the name of each patient with whom I consulted, the reason for the visit and their personal details. I declined to do this and did consult with patients. When this came to their attention they Ordered that my licence to practice medicine be suspended. This means that I cannot continue to speak with people about their medical condition, nor offer any kind of medical advice.
