Anesthesiologist sentenced to 10 years for sexually assaulting 21 women on the operating table

doodnaughtFormer 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.”
