Hamilton doctor guilty of ‘disgraceful’ misconduct may lose licence

News Mar 29, 2016 by Ken Peters The Hamilton Spectator

TORONTO — Disgraced Hamilton pediatrician Dr. Daniel Marshall has been found guilty of two counts of professional misconduct by his regulatory body.

A five-member disciplinary committee of the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons ruled Monday that the longtime Hamilton pediatrician engaged in an act that "would reasonably be regarded as disgraceful, dishonourable and unprofessional."

The committee also found Marshall guilty of an offence relevant to his suitability to practice.

Marshall has pleaded not guilty of engaging in a sexual impropriety with a patient.

The committee is expected to hand down its judgment on that third count Monday afternoon.

The committee's actions relate to an April 2013 conviction for sexual assault in connection with a teenaged boy. The committee has a publication ban in place shielding the identity of the complainant.

College counsel Elisabeth Widner told the committee she will seek revocation of Marshall's medical licence when a sentencing hearing takes place in April.

Marshall is expected to be sentenced April 14 for a second conviction of sexual assault involving a 15-year-old patient in 1991.

In that case, Ontario Superior Court Justice James Ramsay ruled Marshall pulled back the foreskin of the complainant during a genital exam.
