A former Humboldt doctor has admitted to unprofessional conduct charges in a case stemming back to 2018. Dr. Mishack Zwane was accused of conduct causing or permitting excessive billing for services and failing to meet standards for prescribing marijuana by the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Zwane was previously practiced out of the Humboldt Medical Clinic before moving to Saskatoon and working out of Natural Health Services.
Such a situation arises where a physician prescribes medicinal marijuana without being the primary physician or having sufficient medical evidence to warrant a prescription.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons imposed additional penalties and conditions including a requirement to take ethics and medical records keeping courses, a $15,000 fine, and an order to pay costs of the proceedings.
Failure to meet these penalties will result in the continued suspension of Zwane’s license to practice.
