Summary The Toronto Star reveals that the physicians' "self-regulatory bodies are lax at best and deceptive at worst, consistently hiding incompetence and mistakes from public view. As a result, you have little chance of knowing if your physician has ever been disciplined by a hospital, investigated for negligence or sued for malpractice more often than his or her peers."
