sayyyyyy now..........

A Labrador West physician who asked a woman during a Pap test if she “liked big ones or small ones” has lost his medical licence for six months and must be chaperoned when seeing female patients for two years once he goes back to work.

A three-person tribunal established by the provincial College of Physicians and Surgeons found Dr. Adekunle Owolabi guilty Monday of four counts of professional misconduct after a six-day hearing earlier this year.

Four female patients had accused the Nigeria-trained doctor of making sexual comments, and of inappropriate hugging and kissing.

To resume his general practice, Adekunle must take a course on appropriate doctor-patient boundaries. He was also ordered to pay $75,000 in costs related to the investigation and disciplinary process.

In each of the four separate complaints, Owolabi was found to have shown a lack of respect for the dignity and privacy of his patients, constituting professional misconduct.

It shows how difficult it is to get doctors to serve in the North. They have to settle for Third World rejects, like this one.

Trained in Nigeria? You'd think he'd be transferring his millions of dollars into a Canadian bank account, you know, the stuff he got from his dead Uncle, the prince.

Suspended !! take away his license, he's a fuc&^ing pervert and obviously has no control over his sexual fantasies and realities? I can only imagine a man's reaction, if a braindead woman doctor would ask if he prefers fat or small ******'s, while she's examining his *****. yikes !!

In Canada we have to settle for second best. Money talks and good ones walk - straight to where they can charge what they want

So had he been a white man, how would that have changed the direction of the thread?

How do you know he isn't green with purple polka dots? You're the one who brought race into it. How would it have changed had the "doc" been from Sweden?

Where would that be? In the US, doctors get paid what the insurance companies decide they'll pay.

We wouldn't be making all the "African prince" jokes. Instead, we'd be making jokes based on wherever the white man came from.

Why do you ask?

And every other country in the OECD has national health of one kind or another.

Why? Are you looking for some faster, pricier medical stuff?

Practice is in Newfoundland. Money is in Montreal and Toronto

Well, I wouldn't have sent a white man my bank account transit and pin numbers, that's for sure!
