Psychiatrist Forced to Hand in License

Psychiatrist Gonzalo Araujo in now an ex-psychiatrist, at least in Canada.

 

Araujo agreed in a signed statement never to practise again in Canada.  It was a part of the deal that saw the accusations against Araujo dropped and the contents of the proceedings unlikely to ever see the light of day.

 

Very convenient for Araujo and the ‘College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario’, but hardly satisfactory to those making the complaints.

 

Araujo had already been busted in the late 1980’s for having a sexual relationship with a patient.

 

Araujo is now free to move away from Canada to continue his ‘practise’.

One response to this post.

    Having been a patient of Dr. Araujo’s from the age of 14 to 25, I find it difficult to see these one-sided arguments, presuming guilt because of the Dr’s relinquishing of his Canadian license.

    Sometimes there are fights you just don’t have the energy for, and I concede that it is possible that the patient has valid complaint, however, the public’s knowledge of what he said/she said isn’t necessarily going to shed light on what really happened.

    I wish both parties the best possible future, and hope that they are able to forgive, either themselves, or the other party, but I hope this does not negate Dr. Araujo’s professional successes entirely. He has been a very dedicated and helpful doctor to many people.
