Environmental Doctor Jozef Krop Appeals to Canada's Supreme Court

Share

After more than 12 years of battle against the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), environmental doctor Jozef Krop hopes to present his case to the Supreme Court of Canada.

After more than 12 years of battle against the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), environmental doctor Jozef Krop hopes to present his case to the Supreme Court of Canada. This winter, Krop’s legal team is asking the Supreme Court for leave to appeal the CPSO’s verdict regarding his environmental medicine practice.

In 1999, Krop was found to fall below the standard of the profession by the CPSO. The CPSO, which regulates medicine in Ontario, opined that while none of Dr. Krop’s patients were harmed (and even acknowledged that their health improved following treatment), environmental medicine lacks scientific validity. The diagnoses Krop had made, including those of sick building syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity and candidiasis, were deemed to be of unproven validity. The CPSO tribunal rejected the entire defence evidence in support of these diagnoses and their treatments.

Dr. Krop’s lawyers had entered as defence exhibits no less than 123 articles from the world’s top peer-reviewed medical journals to show the scientific basis of these specific treatments, as well as evidence showing that these illnesses are internationally recognized. By contrast, the CPSO’s prosecution lawyers entered six items of "evidence" in support of their rejection of environmental medicine. None were relevant, as they were outdated by as much as 24 years or were mere opinion pieces rather than clinical research articles.

Nevertheless, Krop was reprimanded for recommending vitamin and mineral supplements, rotation diets, non-drug treatments and the switch to organic food and chemical-free water. He was ordered to change his consent forms to state that all his diagnoses and treatments had no scientific basis. It was then that he decided to start the appeal process, which has so far taken almost three years.

Dr. Krop’s lawyer, Michael Code, a charter and criminal law expert, is now seeking leave to appeal in the Supreme Court of Canada. He feels that this case could be deemed by the Supreme Court to be of major social importance. If the appeal is granted, and if it later succeeds, this would be a great boon for patients’ freedom of choice and recognition of the seriousness of our environmental mess.

The fight is for our right to good medicine, and it comes at considerable cost. Donations for the legal expenses can be sent to J. Krop M.D. Legal Defence in Trust via VISA at 1-800-352-8127 or mailed to TD-Canada Trust, 9019 Bayview Ave., Richmond Hill, ON, L4B 3M6.
