When you read this story, you might find yourself wondering how this gent got into medical school. Although justice is not often meted out for offenses like this, it was here.  As reported by

A doctor in Victoria has been disciplined after he texted a photo of an unconscious patient without the patient’s consent.

Dr. John Francis Joseph David Kinahan, who is a specialist in urology, admitted to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia that he engaged in unprofessional conduct. According to the College, Dr. Kinahan took a photo on his personal cell phone of an unconscious patient’s catheter site. This photo was taken without the consent of the patient.

Not to be sexist, but if you don’t recognize that quote, you’re almost certainly female (or young, or old). Why does The Juice say this? Because it’s a classic line from a classic “guy’s” movie called … Animal House.    But back to the story at hand, we have a creepy doctor whose medical career may have just gone down the drain. As reported by The Hindustan Times:

According to sources in the PGIMER administration, a junior resident doctor from the general surgery department was found peeping in the bathroom where a woman doctor was taking bath. The woman identified the colleague who was peeping from top of the wall and raised the alarm.

The sources revealed that the incident took place in the resident doctors’ hostel located above Kairon Block, where both male and female doctors stay. There are common bathrooms for male and female doctors in the hostel.

It is refreshing when someone steps up and admits that they did something bad. Of course, it could just mean that they knew they were going to get nailed anyway. In any event, it doesn’t erase what happened.  This doctor did step up and admit to some serious charges. Now, if only the disciplinary board would do SOMETHING! As reported by

Dr. Tulsibhai Pipalia admits he did something stupid inside his office back in the summer of 2010. He propositioned a patient for oral sex and then exposed himself.

Stupid? No, it’s way, way beyond stupid. More like criminal.

You make a mistake. You own up, suffer the consequences, and move on. Or, like this doc, you don’t own up, but you don’t fight it, and you suffer very few consequences. As reported by The Middletown Press (Middletown, Connecticut), from a decision by the Medical Examining Board:

Fined Brian M. Connolly, an anesthesiologist, $5,000 for performing a nerve block on the right leg of a patient who was having knee replacement on the left leg at New Milford Hospital in July 2011. Connolly, who works for New Milford Anesthesia Associates P.C., didn’t admit guilt, but agreed not to contest the charges and to pay the fine. This will be reported to the NPDB.

Seriously? You don’t make the guy admit guilt? Like it would be hard to prove? And $5,000? The Juice does not approve. Here’s the source.

When I grow up, I want to be a doctor so I can … For this doctor, the rest of the sentence would have been nothing like “help people” or “cure diseases.” As reported by the CBC News:

The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons received complaints from four female patients of Miguel Bonin.

A discipline committee heard that Bonin had made sexual comments during pap smears and vaginal exams.

So you’ll get an idea of what a tool this guy is …

Patients said he commented on the size of their breasts, made sexual invitations, asked about sexual fantasies and said he told them he “became this kind of doctor so I could see pretty women in my office.”

The Juice would suspend Dr. Bonin for at least a year, make him undergo a lot of counseling, and have a professional certify that he’s fit to practice. The punishment?

The College has suspended Bonin for three months… and fined [him] more than $7,000 for misconduct.

When he resumes his practice, the College has imposed restrictions. He will not be able to see a female patient without a monitor approved by the College. He must also post a sign in his office and consulting rooms notifying women of the restrictions he is now under.

Pshaw. Bunch of wimps. Here’s the source.

You won’t believe what this door-to-door salesman was selling. As reported by The Sun Sentinel:

A Coconut Creek man accused of posing as a doctor and offering free door-to-door breast exams has reached a deal with prosecutors, lawyers told a Broward judge on Tuesday.

Phillip Winikoff, 81, was accused in April 2006 of carrying on the ruse with women at an apartment complex in the 3200 block of Northwest 40 Street in Lauderdale Lakes. Investigators said two women took Winikoff up on the offer, allowed him into their apartments and realized something was amiss only after the exams started.

So what happened?

At the time of Winikoff’s arrest, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said he carried a little black bag to lend credibility to his claim of being a doctor. The first victim, 36 at the time, told detectives he started the exam by fondling her breasts, and she knew something was wrong when his hands wandered elsewhere.

Perhaps Mr. Winikoff should have called an escort service?

By the time the victim called 911, Winikoff had already found a second victim, the sheriff’s office said.

Preying on women’s fear of breast cancer, and then sexually assaulting them? Dude should do time, regardless of his age. It’s unsure whether that will happen, as the Judge delayed sentencing. You can read more here.

Seriously – if you’re name has 30 characters, it’s time for a change of some sort. This doctor will make that decision quite simple, as his real offenses include some egregious conduct. As reported at

A trainee gynecologist squeezed a patient’s bottom, kissed a colleague’s breast over her tunic and told a woman an examination would be “the most pleasurable experience” of her life, a disciplinary panel has ruled.

His name?

Dr. Priyantha Perera Kandanearachchi …


… who worked for Cardiff and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg health boards, denied telling the patient the procedure would be intensely pleasurable during an examination in October 2008.

He also denied squeezing a patient’s bottom in February 2010 and putting his mouth to a colleague’s breast in July of last year while working at the Princess of Wales Hospital, in Bridgend.

But a General Medical Council (GMC) disciplinary hearing sitting in Manchester today ruled the allegations against the medic were proven.

The doc is waiting to see if he’ll be allowed to continue practicing medicine. Hopefully not. Here’s the source.

If this case is at all typical, it’s very tough for a doctor in the UK to be permanently barred from practicing medicine. As reported by The Daily Express:

Dr Ellen MacInnes, who has also been banned from driving three times, had to provide a blood sample to prove she was fit to get back behind the wheel, a disciplinary hearing heard.

… However the doctor, of Chelmsford, Essex, abused her position of trust and lied to one of her patients by inventing an illness and claiming she needed to take a sample of their blood. She also forged the signature of a fellow ­doctor.

You probably already know what she did with the blood.

… testers became suspicious when two samples arrived at their laboratory – one clean and one with “abnormalities”.


Dr MacInnes, formerly of the Baddow Village Surgery in Essex, admitted acting dishonestly when she appeared before a disciplinary panel.

The punishment?

The General Medical Council panel banned her from medicine for a year “for the protection of patients, the public interest and her own interest”.

You might be thinking: “that seems reasonable. Maybe she just needs another chance.” Well, it turns out she’s already had another chance, and another.

She was banned after being sacked from the Tennyson House Surgery in Chelmsford in 2006 after fitting a contraceptive coil “while smelling of alcohol”.

She was also suspended for six months in 2009 after receiving her third conviction for drink-driving.

So, after all that, she can reapply in a year. Here’s the source.

The Juice is thinking this might have gone down differently if the doctor had expressed interest in the drugs this pharmaceutical salesman was peddling. But he didn’t. Here’s how it went down, as reported by The Independent:

Pakistani authorities have arrested a doctor on suspicion of violating the country’s contentious blasphemy laws after he threw away the business card of a man who shared the name of the Prophet.

Naushad Valiyani, a Muslim doctor in Hyderabad, in Sindh province, was arrested after a complaint to police alleging he had insulted the Prophet.

The case began when Muhammad Faizan, a pharmaceutical representative, gave Mr Valiyani his business card. When the doctor threw it away, Mr Faizan filed a complaint, noting that his name was the same as the Prophet’s.

Sadly, it’s often not the case that “as ye sew, so shall ye reap.” The latest case involves a Canterbury, New Zealand doctor. He began treating a 13-year-old girl, who then began babysitting his children. When the girl was 16, she was raped. Not surprisingly, the girl’s mother took her to this doctor after the rape. As reported in The New Zealand Herald:

A sexual relationship developed with the doctor and lasted for about three months in 1985.

So this man preys on his patient, a 16-year-old rape victim whose mother placed her trust in him. Surely this man had his medical license revoked? Nope. After being found guilty of “disgraceful conduct,” his license wasn’t even suspended! And, his name will remain a secret! Here’s his “punishment”:

… he has been censured by the Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal which fined him the maximum $1000.

The GP was also required to be mentored by a health professional for three years and ordered to pay $62,666.86 in costs.

How could he get off with a slap on the wrist for this abominable conduct?

The tribunal in its decision said there was no evidence the doctor had behaved inappropriately before or since.

It said the “proved conduct of the charge (was) entirely out of character” and granted the doctor permanent name suppression.

The victim, Ms. A, has it exactly right:

“The argument seems to be that seeing as he got away with it for so long, he might as well get away with it forever.”

May fate serve up a dose of justice for the doctor. Here’s the source.
