Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted June 4, 2024

Edmonton, AB – Family physician Dr. Yolanda Alcaraz-Limcangco of Edmonton was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal after admitting to unprofessional conduct.

In June 2022, as part of a hearing tribunal decision for a separate complaint, Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco was ordered to undergo a Clinical Competence Assessment at the Centre for Personalized Education for Physicians (CPEP) by Sept. 30, 2022. Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco failed to comply with this order, though she did ultimately complete the required assessment by February 2024, after CPSA’s Complaints Director initiated a new complaint.

Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco admitted to the allegations and the Hearing Tribunal accepted a joint submission on sanction, which includes the following:

  • Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco will receive a reprimand and her practice permit is suspended for 30 days, to be served beginning no later than Oct. 1, 2024.
  • Within nine months from the date on the hearing decision and at her own cost, Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco must unconditionally pass CPEP’s PROBE course on ethics and boundaries.
  • Dr. Alcaraz-Limcangco is fined $5,000 and is responsible for 25% of the costs of the investigation and hearing, to a maximum of $10,000.
