College granted permanent injunction for unlawful practice of medicine

On July 21, 2016, the BC Supreme Court granted an Order prohibiting Mobile Life Imaging LLC (MLI) and Mr. Randy Spielvogel, both of North Dakota, USA, from providing any service, or facilitating the provision of any service, that may only be provided by a registrant of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC, and that may only be performed in a facility accredited by the College’s Diagnostic Accreditation Program (DAP).

The BC Supreme Court’s Order follows a lengthy investigation into the activities of MLI and Mr. Spielvogel in British Columbia, after concerns were raised that Mr. Spielvogel was operating an unaccredited diagnostic facility, and performing ultrasound for the purpose of disease screening.

Through the investigation and correspondence with Mr. Spielvogel, it was clear that he was not prepared to cease operations in BC. Following application to the BC Supreme Court, the College was granted a permanent injunction prohibiting Mr. Spielvogel from engaging in the unlawful practice of medicine in British Columbia. The Order further prohibited Mobile Life Imaging LLC from providing ultrasound services in BC until such time as it has been accredited by the DAP in accordance with the College Bylaws, or is otherwise approved by the College.
