GP faces jail for sexual offences against patients
A GP who cited the cases of Angelina Jolie and Jade Goody to instill fear in his patients is facing jail for molesting 23 female patients.
Dr Manish Shah preyed on cancer concerns to persuade patients as young as 17 to undergo unnecessary intimate examinations for his own sexual gratification, the Old Bailey heard.
Over five years, between May 2009 and June 2013, he assaulted six patients of the Mawney Medical Centre, the court was told.
Shah, 50, of Romford, east London, denied wrongdoing, claiming he had been practising “defensive medicine”.
But following an Old Bailey trial, he was found guilty of 25 sexual offences against the six victims.
