2222Dr. Randy Raymond Allan has been charged with forgery, trafficking a narcotic and fraud under $5,000 over alleged incidents involving two women in 2009 and 2010.
His first appearance in Provincial Court was June 13. The next court date is Aug. 12.
Allan was suspended for 18 months last fall after it was found he traded OxyContin prescriptions for sex with two women he initially met at massage parlours.
Allan, who practised at a clinic on Main Street, pleaded guilty to professional misconduct charges levied by the College of Physicians and Surgeons in September.
Allan provided four prescriptions for OxyContin to one woman and 23 prescriptions to another. The college said he also billed Manitoba Health for house calls he made to visit the women and have sex with them.
After the College of Physicians suspended Allan, the province conducted a review into his billings and concluded he made eight questionable claims totalling less than $200. The province said it would seek repayment of the money.
The government forwarded the disgraced doctor's billing files to police, who then laid charges.
A spokeswoman for the college said Friday a new criminal conviction would have no effect on a penalty already imposed by the peer body. But it could weigh on any subsequent application by a doctor to practise in the future.
The college has laid out several strict conditions to Allan's potential return to medical practice.
Should he once again receive his licence, he would also be required to have an approved chaperone present when conducting any female breast or pelvic exams. And he would have to post prominent signs in his office citing that requirement.
