A former Thornbury doctor has had his medical license suspended for committing an act of misconduct. At a hearing on February 13th, a discipline committee of the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons found Dr. Reza Yaghini committed an act of misconduct when he accessed the personal health records of a fellow doctor that he did not have the authorization to see.
Yaghini used to operate a family practice in Thornbury, and was working at the Meaford Hospital when the act of misconduct occurred. The committee found that in June 2013, Yaghini accessed the records of a fellow doctor through the hospital’s emergency record system.
Back in December Yaghini was found by the committee to have committed an act of sexual abuse, which he has since appealed to the Superior Court. His certificate of registration will be suspended for 3 months starting in April for the act of misconduct.
