A Toronto surgeon accused of twice having house-call sex with a female patient told the woman his surgery would transform her into a "sexy goddess," a disciplinary hearing heard yesterday.
Professional misconduct proceedings against Dr. Joseph Ka-Hoi Wong began at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario yesterday with the testimony of his alleged victim whose identity is protected by a publication ban.
Wong denies allegations he had sex with the woman during two house calls to her apartment during a five-day period in January 2003.
The woman testified she first went to Wong's Scarborough office in January 2001 to have a scar on her forehead removed but before that initial consultation was over, the doctor talked her into breast augmentation surgery.
"You have the disposition or temperament of a virgin -- he said that in Chinese," the woman said Wong told her.
Although she didn't understand what he meant, she took it as a "compliment but not very professional."
Wong also said implants would improve her looks, she said.
"If you have bigger breasts, you will make most beautiful girl in the world," Wong said, according to the patient, who was testifying before the College's five-person disciplinary panel.
She also said the doctor used the Chinese word for "sexy goddess or sexy baby."
Prosecutor Shaun O'Brien said in her opening statement that Wong admits to making the house calls, but never made any notations in the patient's medical records to indicate what occurred during those visits.
The woman, meanwhile, continued to see Wong for another 17 months and didn't make any allegations public until October 2005.
Defence counsel Tracey Trenayne-Lloyd said in her opening statement that it is around that time the woman is recorded in a phone call demanding $100,000 from the doctor.
She also told the tribunal that the patient saw Wong 19 times and spent almost $20,000 on his services.
"There is no YouTube video of this patient and Dr. Wong having intercourse," Tremayne-Lloyd said. "This case is about credibility and nothing more or less than that." The hearing continues today.
Here's a stupid question: if you think your doctor is not professional, why do you not consult a different doctor? Answer: because you are in some way complicit with that doctor's lack of professionalism!If the situation was different, say, if my doctor ever tried to shill something stupid like penis-enlargement pills, they would no longer be my doctor! Like everything else, there's something that we're not being told about this story.
