Lubin has not returned to his practice since then "for a variety of reasons," Schollenberg said without elaborating.

Asked why it took until Friday for the college to impose the sanction, Schollenberg said the parties were trying to reach an agreement — "as opposed to going into a full-blown hearing and submitting the complainant to a public hearing."

In the interim, Lubin took a professional "boundary course" of his own volition, the College official added. The course is often part of an imposed sanction for doctors, "just to make sure they understand what's acceptable and what isn't" when it comes to patients.

Lubin had no previous disciplinary action against him, said Schollenberg.

The regulatory bodies in some other provinces have harsher penalties for similar offences while others are less severe.

"There's been a trend in some provinces that are particularly troubled by this supposed behaviour that they have ratcheted up their penalties quite a bit," said Schollenberg, who added: "we haven't seen that kind of a need for that yet."
