An Estevan doctor who had a suspension of his medical license end on January 1st of this year has found himself again facing several charges from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan. In all, Doctor Medhi Horri is facing 14 charges, many of which stem from not following restrictions that had been placed against his license.
The allegations against Dr. Horri, which have not been proven in court, include:
- performing a surgical procedure without adequate prior investigation and/or without obtaining an opinion from a surgeon, and/or thereby did not maintain the standard of practice of the profession.
- performing a surgical procedure in an office setting unsuited for the procedure and/or did not apply sufficient clinical knowledge or surgical skill to the performance of the procedure, and/or therefore did not maintain the standard of practice of the profession.
- not obtaining informed consent for the surgical procedure and/or therefore did not maintain the standard of practice of the profession.
- not providing adequate postoperative instructions and timely postoperative care and/or therefore did not maintain the standard of practice of the profession.
- not having a chaperone present during a procedure with a female patient on a number of occasions, contrary to an undertaking from 2018.
- altered medical records after becoming aware of a College investigation into his conduct
- performing a rectal examination that was not medically indicated.
- inappropriately touching and/or making comments on a female patient’s genitals during an examination.
- harassing and/or encouraging a potential witness in a College investigation to provide false information.
- failing to maintain appropriate medical records for his patients
Dr. Horri has had a number of run-ins with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan over the years. His medical license was revoked in 2017 based on unprofessional conduct while practising medicine in Ontario. He obtained his license back in 2018 with several conditions.
His license was suspended for four months for unprofessional conduct in 2020. Last year, his license was suspended for two more months for breaching two of the conditions of his undertaking with the College.
