Call for Discipline of Dr. Margaret Ochonska sign now
This petition is to initiate disciplinary actions enforced by the College of Physicians and Surgeons against one Dr. M. Ochonska, a female physician practicing in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba in the suburb of Transcona.
Dr M Ochonska
218-B Regent Avenue West
By admission of 76 individuals, providing in detail their grievances against Dr. Ochonska, it is clear that she is in violation of not only moral and ethical standards, but specific to the Code of Conduct that all medical professionals must adhere to as forged by the THE COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF MANITOBA:
The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba

Additional comments are encouraged.
It is clear that the 2 person operation of her practice (herself & receptionist Tabatha) are disgustingly unprofessional, extremely rude to patients, intentionally over-book appointments so that a typical wait time is on average 2 to 4 hours, refuses to phone in a prescription for a patient when they are too ill to attend the office, subject to the miserable nature of her receptionist Tabatha and blatantly demonstrates the polar opposite of what a physician's duties and responsibilities are to the treatment and well being of their patients.
Six of the values that commonly apply to medical ethics discussions are:
* Beneficence - a practitioner should act in the best interest of the patient. (Salus aegroti suprema lex.)
* Non-maleficence - "first, do no harm" (primum non nocere).
* Autonomy - the patient has the right to refuse or choose their treatment. (Voluntas aegroti suprema lex.)
* Justice - concerns the distribution of scarce health resources, and the decision of who gets what treatment (fairness and equality).
* Dignity - the patient (and the person treating the patient) have the right to dignity.
* Truthfulness and honesty - the concept of informed consent
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath traditionally taken by physicians pertaining to the ethical practice of medicine.
The modern version of this oath is as follows:
# To teach medicine to the sons of my teacher. In the past, medical schools would give preferential consideration to the children of physicians.
# To practice and prescribe to the best of my ability for the good of my patients, and to try to avoid harming them. This beneficial intention is the purpose of the physician. However, this item is still invoked in the modern discussions of euthanasia.
# Never to do deliberate harm to anyone for anyone else's interest. Physician organizations in most countries have strongly denounced physician participation in legal executions. However, in a small number of cases, most notably Oregon and the Netherlands, a doctor can perform euthanasia, by both his and the patient's consent.
# To avoid violating the morals of my community. Many licensing agencies will revoke a physician's license for offending the morals of the community ("moral turpitude").
# To avoid attempting to do things that other specialists can do better. The "stones" referred to are kidney stones or bladder stones, removal of which was judged too menial for physicians, and therefore was left for barbers (the forerunners of modern surgeons). Surgery was not recognized as a specialty at that time. This sentence is now interpreted as acknowledging that it is impossible for any single physician to maintain expertise in all areas. It also highlights the different historical origins of the surgeon and the physician.
# To keep the good of the patient as the highest priority. There may be other conflicting 'good purposes,' such as community welfare, conserving economic resources, supporting the criminal justice system, or simply making money for the physician or his employer that provide recurring challenges to physicians.
# To avoid sexual relationships or other inappropriate entanglements with patients and families. The value of avoiding conflicts of interest isn't often questioned.
The gross lack of ethics cannot continue unaddressable. PLEASE read the comments posted on the above listed website for a much more detailed understanding of the gravity of this situation.

Ignorant, unconcerned about the true welfare of the patients, motivated by money & money ONLY! You WILL wait 3 - 4 hours to get in for the appointment that you and 3 or 4 others have for the same time. Tabetha is an enormous (every pun intended) pain

The worst treatment ever, and what is with the receptionist, you are such a fat cow, you shouldn't be the one snarling, other people should for having to look at you!

It is Ironic that many of you claim or accuse Dr O or Tabatha of writtting up on themselves however maybe it is the same person complaining about her over and over again in a panic that in reality you are the only one who needs to get a life and look in t
