An Ontario family physician says he is “proud” to take a stand against “medical tyranny” after the province’s medical regulator prevented him from issuing medical exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines, testing and mask requirements.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) alleged that Dr Patrick Phillips had engaged in “abusive, abusive or unprofessional conduct” in relation to his communications, including posts on social media.
The regulator said that his posts on various digital platforms were allegedly “making misleading, false or inflammatory statements regarding vaccination, treatment and public health measures for COVID-19.”
The CPSO has imposed an interim ban on Philips for refusing to cooperate with an investigation into allegations of spreading misinformation about the pandemic.
Philips has been banned from prescribing ivermectin—an antiparasitic agent that Health Canada says should not be used to treat COVID-19—or fluvoxamine and atorvastatin in connection with the virus.
On 28 September, Philips responded to the allegations and sanctions. on twitter, adding, “I have never been so proud of myself since the day I decided to take a stand against the medical tyranny of my country.”
“Providing patients and the public with COVID-19 and vaccines to treat injuries and protect them from medical pressure is not something I will regret,” he wrote.
In another twitter post, Philippe said that COVID-19 testing is “not a harm-free process,” citing Example of a young girl who received a nasal swab test needed to return to school and later started bleeding from her nose and one of her eyes.
“For this reason it requires informed consent free of any coercion or reprimand,” Phillips wrote, “that forced medical procedures are assaulted under the Canadian Criminal Code.”
The CPSO has referred the charges against Phillips to its disciplinary tribunal.
In the hearing notice, the CPSO alleged that, between August 2020 and September 2021, Philips “committed an act of professional misconduct” by posting on social media about the COVID-19 pandemic and refusing to cooperate with its investigation.
The college said Phillips is the first doctor to be referred to its disciplinary tribunal and faces interim measures over allegations of COVID-19 misinformation, although a hearing date has yet to be set.
Phillips’ primary location of practice is Englehart and District Hospital in Englehart, Ont.
In March 2021, the CPSO warned Dr. Kulwinder Kaur Gill, a pediatrician in Brampton, Ont., about COVID-19 in several Twitter posts, including one that said, “mitigation strategies like masks and lockdowns are not necessary.” Huh.”
Gill was accused of “lack of professionalism and failure to exercise caution in his posts on social media, which are irresponsible behavior on the part of a member of the profession and presents a potential risk to public health.”
That decision is being appealed to an independent judicial agency, the Health Professions Appeals and Review Board. According to the CPSO, a request for judicial review has also been made in the divisional court.
