He is accused of repeatedly gripping the complainant’s breasts and buttocks and grabbing her throat with “some pressure”.
The Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard today that he is accused of kissing the alleged victim and rubbing his crotch against her.
Dr. Sandhu committed one attack on the hospital’s emergency department on Dec. 1, 2018, and another five on Feb. 2 last year, it was said.
The doctor, who currently works as a general practitioner at a practice in West Hampstead, appeared in court today denying all charges.
The complainant also alleges that Dr Sandhu of Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, put his hand under her clothes and into her bra, said prosecutor Jonathan Bryan.
He also reportedly rubbed the woman and said ‘do you feel that?’, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.

Mr. Bryan said the first allegation was that the doctor grabbed the woman’s breast over her clothing.
He added: ‘Then, on February 2, a whole series of incidents also took place in the Emergency Department.
“She grabs her breasts, kisses her.”
District judge Nina Tempia bailed the doctor on the condition that he did not contact the alleged victim directly or indirectly.
He was released on bail in the run-up to a plea and a pre-trial hearing at Southwark Crown Court on October 5.
