A doctor who showed naked photos of himself to 11 female patients and three colleagues lost his license after saying two: & I have seen yours, now you have mine seen & # 39 ;.
Dr. Nigel Mark Phipps, from Ontario, Canada, touched at least one patient in a sexual way and made comments of a sexual nature to others, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario disciplinary committee found last year.
Allegedly he has shown the images to female patients in the long run under the guise of talking about a golf trip he had made years earlier.
The committee said GP Phipps was sexually excited after showing the photos to two of the patients, The national post reports.
Another patient claimed that he showed her a photo of his genitals and asked her: & # 39; Is my husband not so well endowed? & # 39; Another called him a & # 39; glittering dragon & # 39 ;, reports say.
The medical regulator in Canada is now looking to revoke his medical license after a discipline committee found that his behavior went well beyond the level of unacceptable in shameful, dishonest and unprofessional behavior.

The committee wrote: & # 39; Limits in a physician's workplace are essential to provide an atmosphere of safety and respect for everyone.
& # 39; They help manage and address issues with workplace harassment, workplace safety and power disruptions in environments that are often fast, intense, and stressful.
& # 39; Dr. Phipps' behavior transcends such boundaries and constitutes shameful, dishonable and unprofessional behavior. It cannot be tolerated. & # 39;
One patient told the hearing: & to this day I have dr. Phipps sitting at the table in the courtroom (discipline audience hall), but in my dream he is a slippery dragon bent over the table and staring at me.
& # 39; Every night when I close my eyes, I see this. A man I once admired as a great doctor has given me the impression that you cannot trust anyone because they will use it to their advantage. & # 39;
Another said they were left with distrust for medical male professionals & # 39 ;, The star reports.
Lawyer Elizabeth Widner asked on Wednesday that the commission imposed the most severe punishment that was available.
She said that Phipp's actions were not a brief judgment. Instead, she argued that this took weeks and had consequences for various patients.

One of his victims had already had serious physical or emotional problems, Widner said.
But lawyers defending Phipps say he was suffering from depression at the time of the 2014 incidents and asked him to stop taking medicine for more than a year.
Widner argued: & # 39; There is no causal relationship. & # 39;
Phipps said: “I understand that my depression caused me to do self-destructive behavior, without realizing what I was doing. I tried to apologize for my behavior and yet there really was no excuse. I feel incredibly repentant.
& # 39; I don't think I'll ever have the shame I feel. I just hope the panel understands that I speak honestly when I say that I cannot feel worse about what I have done. & # 39;
The doctor was charged last year, but the case was put on hold while he sought medical treatment himself.
The college also asks Phipps to pay more than $ 16,000 for each patient, as well as more than $ 15,000 to cover the costs of the procedure.
