Doctor in botched circumcision case still practicing for now

The College of Physicians says it will make a decision within days on whether Dr Raymond Rezaie can continue his circumcision practice for the time being.

He faces a disciplinary hearing sometime next year in connection to 31 botched circumcisions that had to be repaired with corrective surgery

The complaints were brought before the College of Physicians by Rezaie's Ste-Justine colleagues.

A subsequent investigation by the College concluded that he carried out "inadequate" and "inappropriate" circumcisions.

They added that he was a danger to the public.

The cases date between 2011 and 2013.

Rezaie's disciplinary hearing will take place some time next year.

    It's 2013. Why are we still cutting parts off children's genitals anyway?

    The question here is not the circumcision decision, that is a personal choice. The question is why is this incompetent doctor, after botching 31 procedures which required corrective surgery and is considered a danger to the public, being allowed to continue????
    Ok, I guess it'll take a few more " mistakes " until he is forced to stop.
    Does anyone remember the doctor at the Lakeshore and his colonoscopy record?
    What does it take to stop these incompetent people from risking people's lives?

    If I or anyone else ever made 31 mistakes, we would be FIRED. Doctors and politicians seem to never get fired. Why are these people protected? How does this butcher ever get insurance to practice? They seem to fade away from the spotlight and resurface at another hospital or clinic. Take away his licence forever.
