Dr. Wee Lim Sim resigned from the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons on Tuesday after its disciplinary committee condemned the unhygienic conditions in his downtown clinic.
The National Post reports that the conditions put "two dozen patients (...) at grave risk of infection."
Sim also reportedly "sent anesthesized women home alone in taxis" and gave patients a form letter that read, "If you do not keep quiet, your surgery will be cancelled and you will have to go to another doctor."
In their reprimand, members of the College’s disciplinary committee said it is “disheartening” to see a physician kicked out of the profession at the end of a “valued career, especially so when that career has been in an area which has provided controversy, conflict and even threats of harm to its practitioners and which has provided help for women, often in extremely vulnerable an distressing circumstances.”
Outside the hearing room, Sim appeared unfazed by the reprimand.
I did a few things not according to the standards of the College,” he said. “With enough skill and experience you can do without many of those things.”
