            As from February 11, 2014, the following is imposed as a term, condition and

                  Effective immediately, Dr. Ihab Albair Aziz Eskander shall not engage in
                  any professional encounters with female patients of any age, in any

                  a female regulated health professional approved by the College, and

Previous Hearings

Committee: Discipline
Decision Date: 22 Jun 2009

 On June 22, 2009, the Discipline Committee found that Dr. Eskander committed an act of professional 
 misconduct, in that he engaged in 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. Eskander practiced medicine in Egypt between 1992 and 1995, 
 at which time he moved to Ontario. In 1999, Dr. Eskander applied to the Newfoundland Medical 
 Board. He practised as a family doctor in Newfoundland between 2000 and 2002. In 2002, Dr. 
 Eskander applied for a certificate of registration from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of 
 Ontario (CPSO). Dr. Eskander admitted that he supplied information to the Newfoundland Medical 
 Board and the CPSO which was not accurate, in that it failed to disclose interruptions in practice 
 after Dr. Eskander came to Canada in 1995.

The Discipline Committee ordered and directed 

1.  Dr. Eskander successfully complete, at his own expense, the College's Medical Ethics 
 and Informed Consent Course on the next available date, and in any event within six months of the 
 date of the Order, and to provide proof thereof to the College.

2.  Dr. Eskander appear before 
 the panel to be reprimanded.

3.  Dr. Eskander pay to the College costs in the amount of $3,650 
 within 30 days of the date of the Order.

4.  The results of this proceeding be included in the
