A second patient is now making serious accusations against a doctor in Regina – that he inappropriately touched her during an exam.
These new accusations against Dr. Sylvester Ukabam stem from an exam in 2014 and were made to the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons.
They say the patient was given a medical gown to put on, then she was positioned on all fours on the exam table and when Ukabam examined her he inserted a finger or fingers into her vagina.
According to the documents from the college Ukabam didn’t have permission to do that, nor did he have any medical reason – Ukabam is a gastroenterologist, a doctor who deals with the digestive system.
He’s also accused of watching the patient dress and then giving her a hug before she left.
The first accusations against Ukabam from January of this year were very similar. But those stemmed from a patient exam in spring 2017, and the College documents say he had the patient put on a medical gown backwards.
Ukabam is charged with unprofessional conduct in these cases. None of the allegations have been proven to the college and dates for the hearings have not yet been set
