  1. I can tell you he is a very good doctor. I think it is a very unfair that his rights to confidentiality are being violated like this without a fair trial

  2. It might or might not be true in this case, but very many doctors do commit sexual offenses with female patients.

  3. How can such a short article be misleading?

    Editor: please note this is a press release from the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service.

  4. What kind of ######## is that ?
    The fact that the identity of the Dr is known but not the victim.
    What happens if he is found innocent.
    His reputation is smeared forever while the victim walks
