College suspends license of Dr. Christopher Wozniak
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia has announced that pursuant to a Hearing Committee decision under Section 52 of the Nova Scotia Medical Act, the Nova Scotia medical license of Dr. Christopher Wozniak, a family physician in Leduc, Alberta, is suspended until June 5, 2008.
This suspension was prompted by a disciplinary decision regarding Dr. Wozniak that was issued by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA) on November 30, 2007. The CPSA found Dr. Wozniak guilty of conduct unbecoming a medical practitioner by engaging in a sexual relationship with a patient in or about December 1995.
The Hearing Committee decision indicates that the terms of the disposition issued by the CPSA (including the dates of his license suspension, mandatory remediation and terms of reinstatement) would also apply to Dr. Wozniak’s license to practice medicine in Nova Scotia.
