Previous Discipline Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 18 May 2012
Summary:

On May 18, 2012, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Erez Tamari committed an act of 
professional misconduct, in that he has engaged in conduct or an act or omission relevant to the 
practice of medicine that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded 
by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional. Dr. Tamari failed to respond in a 
timely manner to a request for medical records related to his patient made repeatedly by an 
insurance company in 2009 for the purpose of processing the patient's claim under her travel 
insurance policy. Dr. Tamari admitted the allegation. 
 
Patient X incurred a claim while travelling under travel medical emergency insurance. On April 
2, 2009, the insurance company sent a fax to Dr. Tamari's office requesting Patient X's medical 
records in order to process the claim. The fax was marked "urgent" and "please reply" and was 
received by Dr. Tamari's office.   
 
The insurance company sent multiple faxes to Dr. Tamari requesting the medical records. The 
company's records state that between April 8, 2009 and September 30, 2009, employees placed 
over two dozen calls to Dr. Tamari's office to follow up on the request for Patient X's medical 
records.  
Dr. Tamari provided the requested records to the insurance company in mid-November 2009.  
Therefore, the Committee ordered and directed that: 
1.    the Registrar suspend Dr. Tamari's Certificate of Registration for a four week period, to 
commence at 11:59 p.m. on June 18, 2012; 
 
2.    the Registrar impose as terms, conditions and limitations on Dr. Tamari's certificate of 
registration for an indefinite period or for the specified periods of time set out herein: 
 
a.    Dr. Tamari shall maintain a log of requests for third party reports and medical records, 
which shall indicate when such requests were made and when they were fulfilled (the "Log"); 
 
b.    Dr. Tamari shall participate in and successfully complete an educational program in 
practice management with a preceptor who is to be approved by the College in its sole discretion 
and who has within forty-five days of the date of this Order signed an Undertaking to the College 
in the form attached hereto as Schedule "A". Termination of the preceptorship shall be at the sole 
discretion of the College, but shall in any case not occur until either six (6) months have passed, 
or two positive successive reports from the preceptor have been received by the College, 
whichever occurs later. Dr. Tamari shall abide by all recommendations of his preceptor with 
respect to practice improvements and/or professional development;  
 
c.    Within twelve (12) months of completing the preceptorship required by paragraph 2(b) 
above, Dr. Tamari shall undergo a re-assessment with regard to practice management by a 
College-appointed Assessor. The assessment will include a review of Dr. Tamari's Log. Dr. 
Tamari shall abide by all recommendations with regard to practice management made by the 
College-appointed Assessor. The Assessor shall report the results of this assessment to the 
College; 
 
d.    Dr. Tamari shall cooperate with unannounced inspections of his practice and patient 
charts by a College representative(s) for the purpose of monitoring and enforcing his compliance 
with the terms of this Order; 
 
e.    Dr. Tamari shall be responsible for any and all costs associated with implementing the 
terms of this Order. 
 
3.    Dr. Tamari attend before the panel to be reprimanded; 
 
4.    Dr. Tamari shall, within 30 days, pay the College its costs of this proceeding in the 
amount of $3,650.00.

Summary:

 maximum of $1,200.00, and if the inspection itself occurs prior to May 1, 2000;
