A decade after complaints against her were first addressed behind closed doors, Cathy Frank has had her medical licence yanked for two years, a regulatory college reports.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario ruled last week that Frank, who worked at a fertility clinic in London, was incompetent and committed professional misconduct.

The Free Press sought comment from Frank, who has been sued by more than 50 women, many not for her fertility practice but for prior work as an obstetrician and gynecologist. But Frank didn’t reply to a message sent to her on the employment networking website LinkedIn.

The college has yet to publish detailed reasons for the suspension, which often takes a couple of months to write and publish.

But the college did outline future restrictions and obligations on Frank should she seek to resume her practice in 2020:

  • Perform ultrasound-guided procedures only in a clinic belonging to a clinical supervisor and where a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist are there to intervene if required
  • Limit her practice to reproductive endocrinology and infertility, office-based gynecology and obstetrical care before 20 weeks of pregnancy.
  • Undergo a reassessment of her practice by someone appointed by the college within six months, who can impose further restrictions.
  • Practise only in a group setting approved by the college.
  • Submit to unannounced inspections.
  • Pay $10,180, within 30 days to cover costs related to the proceedings against her.

Frank has been sued by more than 50 women and faced complaints from 25 women before the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. She previously agreed to restrict her practice as a gynecologist, including not using or interpreting ultrasound, a diagnostic tool found in fertility clinics.
