If the limitation period does not start to run until the doctor patient relationship with the doctor has terminated, should it continue?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Novello v Glick, 2016 ONSC 975 (CanLII):

Further, if the Deputy Judge had considered whether the facts before him engaged the examples in Tremain v. Muir or Brown v. Baum, the result would have been obvious. There are no facts in this case that would support a finding that the limitation period should not start to run until the doctor patient relationship terminated.
