A Montreal doctor has been fined $27,500 in a case involving gynecologists who referred patients to his ultrasound clinic.

Hing-Sang Hum pleaded guilty in October to giving “gifts” to three doctors who are staff members at the Jewish General Hospital — payments totalling almost $36,000 between 2011 and 2015.

The three doctors referred patients to Hum’s ultrasound clinic near the Côte-des-Neiges Rd. building where they practised.

At a Quebec College of Physicians disciplinary hearing held in the fall, Hum’s lawyer said the gift-giving payments were not kickbacks; however, Hum realized the practice was inappropriate.

In 1970, 7% of gynecologists were women. Now 59% are. Some men fear the falling number of male OB-GYNs could eventually lead to them being excluded from the specialty. Levy and others believe the shift is largely driven by patients seeking doctors who seem more like peers than white coats.

Two Montreal gynecologists have been fined for accepting thousands of dollars in gifts from a Shinder, a doctor since 1976 and a obstetrician/ gynecologist since 1980, told the disciplinary She said she refers patients to the clinic run by Hum ( whom she considers a friend) because it is near

“He wanted to give money to share with colleagues the success that he had in his profession,” Pierre-Jérôme Bouchard told the hearing.

The College council fined Hum $27,500, payable within a year, according to a ruling made public Tuesday.

Hum had pleaded guilty to breaching the Quebec’s physicians’ code of ethics forbidding a doctor “from granting, in the practice of his profession, any benefit, commission, or rebate to any person whatsoever.”

College investigator, Michel Jarry had discovered the money exchange while investigating a patient complaint against another physician, Alan Climan. At a meeting, it emerged that Climan was getting gifts from Hum. When Jarry question Hum, he said it had happened only once. Hum’s bank records, however, revealed a pattern of payments to several doctors over several years.

Between 2011 and 2015, Hum had given 14 cheques to each of these doctors: Markus Martin $4,230, Janet Shinder $13,590 and Allan Climan $18,140 for a total of $35,960.

In July, the College’s disciplinary board fined Martin $5,000 and Shinder $10,000. Both were accused of violating a section of the ethics code that says a physician must refrain from accepting “any commission, rebate or material benefit with the exception of customary presents and gifts of modest value.”

Martin, who was on the Quebec College of Physicians’ board of directors when he was accused of the ethical breach, has since resigned from the position.

A decision on Climan’s case is still to come.
