The Patient/Doctor relationship is extremely important! I was sexually abused by a doctor for years. He sexually assaulted me at least four times while I was a patient of his for 15 years. He also manipulated me and groomed me. I went through the CPSO and they are literally treating me like garbage. They gave me money from the sexual abuse fund to help me with my treatment because they have high reason to believe that this did happen. They offered me $16,060 which isn't enough to pay my therapists and others that I go to for help. They obviously did this so I don't try to sue them later. I have so much evidence against this man who did this to me since I was 16 years old. He also has been charged and was arrested with sexual assault and sexual exploitation. He was released on bail and knows my address. I don't even know what he looks like currently and he has all of my very personal information in his possession. I can't know nothing else about him! I am awaiting for a preliminary inquiry in November 2019. This place, the CPSO, just basically told me to stop messaging them, and to go to the police. They told me to go to the wrong police station as well because they had no idea where the boundary was and didn't know the medical practice was using the wrong address. The police didn't catch on either. They re-victimized me on so many occasions. The police also hasn't been very supportive and they don't care about the Victims' Bill of Rights. I have been fighting to get the college to change their policies to protect the rights of victims, and they refuse to listen. Their policy on patient/doctor relationships is absolutely disgusting. I am not pleased by their response and I would love to sue them as well. The police hasn't offered me other services for help and made me go around trying to find my own support. I almost killed myself last August and no one cared! It's been a struggle for eleven years of my life!
I am disgusted that they don't want to even take responsibility for what happened to me and countless others. Since when is it okay for the patient to just sue the doctor after their criminal case is over in a civil litigation suit? The college should be reprimanded for even allowing a doctor to be licensed and not even monitored to ensure that they were capable of working with patients and protect patients from harm! Had the CPSO done more, they could have caught this individual and this could have been prevented. I blame them for this happening along with the doctor. I should be allowed as a victim of a crime to sue both the doctor and the CPSO for my depression, anxiety, PTSD, sexual issues, and everything else that this situation has caused me in the last eleven years of my life! It is still continuing to affect me on a daily basis and it's a constant waiting game in the province of Ontario.
I think that government needs to get involved and possibly eliminate this establishment and have doctors be regulated in a different way or take over control of the CPSO to enforce policies and actually protect patients and doctors as well. Since when is it okay to have sex with your patients? Since when is it okay for doctors to be alone doing examinations with patients? Since when it is okay for doctors to abuse their relationship with their patients for their own sexual gratification and get away with it?! This is not okay that this place is being run by people who have Ph.D's and no medical training whatsoever. It is disgusting that they can continue to let this happen to innocent people! They need to be stopped or someone needs to come in and fix the management and do something! No one else should ever have to go through what I have been through and I don't wish this upon anyone!
