Pre hearing information
The Tribunal will continue its inquiry into the allegation that, between 22 March 2016 and 26 April 2016, Dr Kees conducted a number of consultations with Patient A regarding his possible exposure to poisoning with elements for which he tested. It is alleged that, during these consultations, Dr Kees failed to take an adequate history, carry out a standard physical examination or implement an appropriate treatment plan. It is also alleged that Dr Kees failed to obtain informed consent for the tests from the patient or explain the rationale for conducting the tests.
It is also alleged that Dr Kees incorrectly diagnosed Patient A as suffering from heavy metal poisoning and failed to conduct further tests to confirm or refute the diagnosis or referring the patient to toxicology for further investigation.
It is also alleged that, at one or more of the consultations, Dr Kees inappropriately commenced Chelation therapy and prescribed treatments, when they were not clinically indicated, in order to obtain additional financial remuneration that he would not have otherwise received. It is also alleged that Dr Kees made inappropriate claims to Patient A about the treatment he had provided.
It is further alleged that Dr Kees’ actions with regard to this patient were dishonest.
This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.
All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
