Edmonton, AB – A CPSA Hearing Tribunal sanctioned Dr. Michel Prevost, an OB/GYN from Calgary, after he admitted to charges of unprofessional conduct.
Dr. Prevost was accused of failing to maintain appropriate boundaries with a patient, failing to properly assess and treat a patient’s pain and, in violation of conditions on his practice permit, providing Botox injections for therapeutic use and prescribing monitored medications.
The Tribunal accepted Dr. Prevost’s admission of unprofessional conduct and their orders included the following, based on a joint submission on sanction:
- Dr. Prevost is suspended from practice for six months, with four months to be served and two held in abeyance pending fulfillment of the Tribunal’s remaining orders.
- Dr. Prevost must have a chaperone present for all patient encounters.
- Dr. Prevost is responsible for two-thirds of the costs of the investigation and hearing (final amount to be determined).
