Former North York General anesthesiologist Dr George Doodnaught, 65, was found guilty of sexually assaulting 21 women patients while they were semi-conscious on the operating table. He took advantage of his position in the operating room, concealed behind a sterile screen that separates patients’ upper and lower bodies. His victims were between the ages of 25 and 75 years old.
Doodnaught has been sentenced to 10 years in prison, a sentence at least one of his victims is not happy with. “I am very happy with the conviction, however I am very disappointed with the sentencing,” said the patient whose complaint launched the criminal investigation. She cannot be identified due to a publication ban. “Ten years, as far as I’m concerned, is insulting.”
