BEFORE: Senior Member I. Proctor, Dr B Burge & Dr A Reddy
Decision of Ian Proctor, Senior Member:
1. VCAT finds, with consent of the parties:
(a) Between on or about 11 August 2009 and on or about 31 October 2009, Dr Topchian engaged in professional misconduct as defined in paragraph (b) of the definition of “professional misconduct” in section 3(1) of the Health Professions Registration Act 2005 (Vic), in that he engaged in a sexual relationship with a patient (the Patient) he was treating in his practice as a cosmetic surgeon.
(b) Between on or about 28 July 2010 and on or about 15 September 2010, Dr Topchian behaved in a way which constitutes unprofessional conduct as defined in section 5 of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 (Vic) in that he participated in negotiations, including his solicitor, whereby he proposed to pay a sum of money to the Patient, on condition that she sign formal documentation that she would refrain from taking action in relation to, or otherwise disclosing, that he had engaged in a sexual relationship with the Patient and on condition that she delete material relevant to that relationship from her laptop computer and mobile telephone.
2. VCAT makes the following determinations under section 77 of the HPR Act and section 196 of the National Law:
(a) Dr Topchian’s registration is suspended for a period of one year, the suspension commencing on 1 March 2013.
(b) Dr Topchian is reprimanded.
(c) Dr Topchian is required to consult a mentor, being a medical practitioner who the Medical Board of Australia agrees is appropriate, on a monthly basis during the period of his suspension and for two years thereafter, that mentor having agreed to report in writing to the Board every three months, unless the Board and the mentor agree to a variation of that period.
(d) Engagement of the mentor is to be at Dr Topchian’s expense…
1. Dr David Topchian admits to having a sexual relationship over three months in 2009 with a 21 year old female patient (the Patient). He provided cosmetic surgery treatment before, during and, to a limited extent, after the relationship. Some time after he ended the relationship, the Patient asked him for money. He negotiated with her, engaging lawyers to assist. The negotiations broke down. Believing she was about to reveal the relationship to his wife and others, in September 2010, he notified the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) about the relationship and told his wife…
3. In December 2011, the Medical Board of Australia (the Board) referred the notification to VCAT. When it came to final hearing, the parties produced an agreed statement of facts, provided documentary evidence and agreed VCAT should find he had engaged in professional misconduct and unprofessional conduct. The parties did not agree about appropriate determinations. The Board submitted VCAT should cancel Dr Topchian’s licence for at least two years. Dr Topchian submitted a three month suspension was appropriate…”
