447.03 Annotation Tort-based informed consent law requires a showing that a failure to disclose information caused actual injury. The standards of unprofessional conduct do not require such a showing. Unprofessional conduct includes practicing in a manner that substantially departs from the standard of care ordinarily exercised by a dentist that harms or could have harmed a patient. Painter v. Dentistry Examining Board, 2003 WI App 123, 265 Wis. 2d 248, 665 N.W.2d 397, 02-2218.
447.03 Annotation The 5-pronged test of Gimenez, 203 Wis. 2d 349, does not apply to cases in which fraud and misrepresentation are alleged. Gimenez expressly limits the application of the test to cases in which the medical professional is charged with choosing a course of treatment that is dangerous or detrimental to his or her patient or the public. It does not apply to allegations of unprofessional conduct by perpetrating a fraud on a patient in an attempt to obtain compensation. Krahenbuhl v.
