Dr. Wequar Ahmad, a general practitioner from Calgary, was found guilty of unprofessional conduct by a CPSA hearing tribunal after failing to comply with a CPSA undertaking, creating false entries on the chart of a patient, and engaging in a sexual relationship with a patient. Dr. Ahmad was also found guilty of having failed to report his sexual relationship with his patient on his 2018 annual renewal information form.
In 2014, Dr. Ahmad signed an undertaking with CPSA that required a chaperone must be present for all examinations of female patients. He was found guilty of having created false entries on the records of thirteen female patients seen during the period between 2014 and 2017 that stated a chaperone was present, when in fact there was no chaperone present.
The hearing tribunal will reconvene at a later date to determine Dr. Ahmad’s sanction. Dr. Ahmad voluntarily withdrew from practice when the allegations were reported to CPSA while the investigation was completed, and has not been in practice since 2018.
