Counterfeit physicians seem to be surfacing regularly these days, with Toronto police charging a 19-year-old Toronto woman last week with aggravated assault after she performed a plastic-surgery procedure with no medical training, calling herself Dr. Kitty.
Ontario’s College of Physicians has taken action against five others since 2014, the bogus doctors offering everything from psychiatry to cosmetic injections.
The experience of Quebec’s College des Medecins suggests the scope of the problem may be much larger.
It laid 98 charges in 2016-2017 of illegally practising medicine and using the title of doctor.
