In 2011/2012, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario held a disciplinary hearing involving Dr. Wong. The case had to do with the manner in which Dr. Wong completed Special Diet Allowance application forms.
ISAC was granted permission to intervene in the case, to address the potential impact this case could have on social assistance recipients, who rely upon physicians to complete forms that allow them to access social benefits.
In December 2012, the College concluded that Dr. Wong breached the standards of his profession, but noted that the standard for completing the forms should not be so high that individuals cannot access the program.
