Estevan doctor Mehdi Horri has had his license suspended, according to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan.

Horri was previously required to have a chaperone present for any visits from female patients.

Bryan Salte of the College of Physicians and Surgeons said this condition was recently breached.

"Doctor Horri is required to have a chaperone present for all interactions with female patients. The college received a complaint from a patient that indicated that a chaperone was not present. And the patient also expressed concern about the way that she was examined by Doctor Horri," Salte said.

"Under our legislation, a suspension remains in effect until the next meeting of the council, and the council will review the suspension and determine if it should continue or be changed in some way," he continued.

Salte added that council will meet to discuss the suspension on Jan. 27.

Dr. Horri also had his license suspended once before, back in 2020.

He had been practicing medicine in Estevan since 2012.

Our DiscoverEstevan news team reached out to Dr. Horri's office twice, but Dr. Horri was unavailable for comment.
