Edmonton, AB – Dr. Shahram Jabbari-Zadeh, a family physician from Spruce Grove, was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal after admitting to unprofessional conduct.
It was alleged Dr. Jabbari-Zadeh conducted an inadequate patient assessment in 2018, by failing to question the patient on the presence or absence of alarm features (which would prompt further, more urgent action), failing to conduct an adequate physical examination, and failing to create an adequate patient record.
Dr. Jabbari-Zadeh admitted to the allegations. The Hearing Tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction and ordered the following:
- Dr. Jabbari-Zadeh will receive a reprimand.
- Dr. Jabbari-Zadeh must participate in CPSA’s Individual Practice Review at his own cost, and implement any remediation that is recommended.
- Dr. Jabbari-Zadeh is responsible for 60% of the costs of the investigation and hearing.
