Psychiatrist stripped of licence for sex abuse of her patient
Warning: Graphic content follows.
One fall afternoon in 2010 while Dr. Jane Gilbert was drinking with a patient at his home, she asked him if he wanted help getting an erection.
It would prove to be the beginning of the end of her career in psychiatry.
But not before she also had sex with Patient A, whose identity is covered by a publication ban, at her home, his cottage, her office at the Oakville hospital and a hotel room.
All of this is laid out in a statement of uncontested facts filed Wednesday at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, where a discipline panel stripped Gilbert of her licence, having found she sexually abused a patient and committed professional misconduct.
Gilbert, owner of The Bear Clinic in Oakville, was a noshow for the hearing, having sent two lawyers in her place who entered a plea of “no contest,” meaning she consents to the discipline panel accepting the allegations as correct for the purpose of the hearing only, but was also not admitting guilt.
