Dr Tommy Jodlovich – Medical Practitioner – Registration Cancelled
9 September 2021
The Health Care Complaints Commission prosecuted a complaint against Dr Tommy Jodlovich, a registered medical practitioner before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (‘the Tribunal’). The complaint alleged that Dr Jodlovich was convicted of a criminal offence and that he was guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct and professional misconduct in relation to his failure to notify AHPRA about his conviction as well as previous complaints made to the Commission.
In its decision of 31 August 2021, the Tribunal found all of the complaint proven, namely that:
- On 3 December 2019, Dr Jodlovich was convicted of a criminal offence, namely dishonestly making or publishing a false statements with the intention of obtaining a financial advantage contrary to s 192G(b) of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW);
- Dr Jodlovich failed to notify AHPRA within seven days of being charged and subsequently convicted of a criminal offence; and
- During the period 2017 to 2019, Dr Jodlovich failed to disclose he had been the subject of previous complaints made to the Commission.
The Tribunal held that, considering the circumstances of the offence, Dr Jodlovich is unfit in the public interest to practise medicine. The Tribunal cancelled Dr Jodlovich’s registration and prohibited him from seeking a review of the order for 12 months.
The full decision of the Tribunal is available at NSW Caselaw.
