HALIFAX - A much-needed doctor recruited from overseas to serve a small Nova Scotia town has had his medical licence revoked because he under-reported his qualifications.
It seems an unlikely outcome for Dr. Mohsen Yavari, whose 2013 arrival in Glace Bay, N.S., was greeted with a story in the local Cape Breton Post detailing the excitement in an aging community badly in need of physicians.
But Yavari didn't disclose the six years he spent as an emergency medicine specialist in Dubai when he applied to a program to bring foreign doctors to serve as family physicians in under-serviced parts of Nova Scotia.
