A Surrey doctor has been disciplined after admitting to unprofessional conduct.

According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C., Dr. Donald Standford Allan Hay admitted to questionable conduct with a patient between 1997 and 2003, which included keeping inadequate medical records, engaging in conversations of a personal and sexual nature, meeting the patient in his vehicle and giving prescriptions to the patient using the personal health care information of a family member who was not a patient.

Hay's licence to practise medicine was cancelled as of Dec. 31, 2010 and he was ordered to pay $5,000 in costs.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons is the licensing and regulatory body for all physicians and surgeons in the province.
