Dr. Petrus Krog sanctioned for unprofessional conduct

Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted September 9, 2022

Edmonton, AB – After admitting to unprofessional conduct, Dr. Petrus Krog, a general practitioner from Taber, was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal.

Dr. Krog was accused of exchanging inappropriate text messages with a patient, which violates CPSA’s standard of practice on Sexual Boundary Violations.

Dr. Krog acknowledged that his actions were unprofessional and the Hearing Tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction. Their orders include the following:

  • Dr. Krog’s practice permit is suspended for three months, with two months to be served and one month held in abeyance pending fulfillment of the Tribunal’s remaining orders. His active suspension includes a credit of 22 days in which he was out of practice in December 2020 and January 2021.
  • An existing chaperone condition will remain on Dr. Krog’s practice permit until he completes one year of psychological counselling and the Assistant Registrar of CPSA’s Physician Health Monitoring Program is satisfied the condition is no longer required.
  • Dr. Krog is responsible for two-thirds of the costs of the investigation and hearing (final amount to be determined).

As this case predates An Act to Protect Patients, mandatory sanctions under that legislation do not apply.
