Edmonton, AB – Dr. Mohammed A.R. Sayeed, a Family Physician from Lloydminster, was found guilty of unprofessional conduct by a CPSA hearing tribunal after engaging in an inappropriate sexual relationship with a patient and failing to report the sexual relationship to CPSA.
The sexual relationship occurred in 2016 and was originally reported through a complaint to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CPSS) – Dr. Sayeed holds a license in both provinces as Lloydminster sits on the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. Dr. Sayeed admitted to unprofessional conduct and had his CPSS license revoked in September 2018. Dr. Sayeed was later reinstated by the CPSS.
CPSA was informed of the investigation by CPSS in June 2018 and Dr. Sayeed signed an undertaking with CPSA that required him to have a chaperone present with all female patients, caregivers, family members and guardians.
Upon completion of the CPSS hearing process, CPSA proceeded with its investigation into whether Dr. Sayeed failed to adhere to both the Standard of Practice regarding Sexual Boundary Violations and Self-reporting, in addition to falsely reporting on his 2017 and 2018 annual renewal information form that he had not engaged in a sexual or inappropriate personal relationship with a patient.
The hearing tribunal will reconvene at a later date to determine Dr. Sayeed’s sanction.
