Pharmacist complaints lawyer for the Ontario College of Pharmacists

If you have been notified that you are the subject of a complaint or report to the Ontario College of Pharmacists, you should seek immediate legal representation.

Whether you are the subject of a complaint or report concerning a dispensing error, record keeping, or billing practices, Damien Frost & Associates LLP can help. An experienced lawyer will represent you throughout the entire complaint, investigation and discipline process, to ensure that your rights are protected and that you have the best chance of success.

What does the College do about a Complaint?

If a complaint has been made about you to the Ontario College of Pharmacists, you have the right to receive the complaint and make written submissions to the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“the ICRC”) of the College.

The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP have experience drafting submissions on behalf of pharmacists in a manner that ensures they cannot be used against them in the future.

What is a Report of Investigation?

If you have been the subject of an investigation by the Ontario College of Pharmacists, you have the right to receive the Report of Investigation and make submissions to the ICRC. These submissions should be drafted by experienced counsel in order to protect your rights and interests and to ensure that your professional reputation and career are protected.

The stakes can be high, as some decisions made by the ICRC are public and posted on your profile on the College’s website.

Lawyers for Matters before the Discipline Committee of the Ontario College of Pharmacists

The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP have significant experience handling disciplinary matters with the Ontario College of Pharmacists. The Discipline Committee has broad powers which can have a serious effect on your professional licence and  career.

Any decision made by the College of Pharmacists Discipline Committee is published on its website. If the Discipline Committee makes a finding of professional misconduct against you, it has the power to: revoke your certificate of registration, suspend your certificate and/or impose terms and conditions on your practice. It can also order you to pay thousands of dollars to the College in fines and costs.

It is crucial to have experienced legal representation as soon as you learn that allegations of professional misconduct are being referred to a disciplinary hearing. Consult with our team to learn more about your options.

Very Professional and Helpful

I hired Ms Rebecca Young regarding a legal matter in October 2015. I found her and the firm to be very professional and helpful. The whole process took about one year to resolve. I followed her advice and the outcome was in my favour. I would recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and pleasant attitude. –

Pleased with the Outcome

Helped a Lot to Calm my Nerves

"I was accused by my former employer of interfering and damaging their computer systems. I was charged under the Criminal Code for mischief, unauthorized access and destruction of data, which was a very scary, stressful, and upsetting experience. I thought that my world was over and all the hard work I had done in my life was coming to an end. Mr. Frost’s initial consultation (which was no obligation and free of charge) helped a lot to calm my nerves and comfort me and my family in trying times. His team was very understanding, sympathetic, concerned and supporting, she always took my frantic phone calls with calmness and assurance and helped me understand the progress of my case clearly. At every step, I received sound professional advice. At the end of the case, the charges were dropped. As a result, I do not have a criminal record, my reputation is intact, and my current job is still secure. Words cannot truly express my gratitude for having such amazing lawyers. From explaining the terminology used in court, to sitting with me outside the court room when I couldn’t hold back my tears, they stood by my side. Thank you for exceeding my expectations, and then some."

I am very Pleased

"I was charged along with nine other physicians with fraud against OHIP. I was also the subject of a complaint before the College of Physicians and Surgeons arising from the same allegations. I was assigned counsel by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA). On the advice of a friend who was a Crown Counsel I insisted that I be allowed to retain Mr. Frost. I am very pleased that I was allowed to do so. Mr. Frost (together with Ms. Samantha Peeris) provided me with first class representation. He convinced the Crown to drop the charges against me. His office always kept me informed in a timely fashion of any developments. He clearly understood the impact of these allegations on my professional reputation. Mr. Frost always maintained a very low profile. Mr. Frost went on to represent me before the College of Physicians and Surgeons ensuring that no disciplinary was taken. I continue to practice medicine in my area of expertise." –

I was Relieved with his Representation

"I am a healthcare provider with a practice in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario. I was represented by Mr. Frost before my professional licensing College with respect to a complaint by an insurance company. I was quite concerned that the complaint could affect my professional standing and reputation. Mr. Frost understood what needed to be done. He also understood the impact the complaint was having on me personally. He acted quickly. He was able to convince the College to take no further action. I was relieved that his representation was very low profile and my professional reputation was not undermined with the public or the College. As a result of his representation my status with that particular insurer was regularized."
