Doctor's group wants to bar 'dangerous' gyno at St. Mary's

A gynecologist working out of St. Mary's Hospital is in trouble with the Quebec College of Physicians after it received several complaints.

Dr. Robert Pilorgé is facing a sexual misconduct charge after he allegedly made several suggestive comments toward a patient in 2013. He supposedly told the patient she had "des beaux jambons" ("nice legs"), squeezed her thighs, and then told her if she was his wife, he would "do" her twice a week.

Dr. Pilorgé is also being accused of negligence in several cases, including an apparent indifference to a patient's gestational diabetes which ultimately led to the patient miscarrying in 2012.

A lawyer for the College told a disciplinary hearing that Dr. Pilorgé's actions were "dangerous".

This is not the first time he's been in trouble with the order — in 2009, it banned him for four months for making similar lewd comments to another patient.

    Not surprised by this report. I accompanied my aunt a few years ago to see this doctor. Clinic was unsanitary and he was less than professional. My aunt felt very uncomfortable with him and never returned.

    Why is this scum bag still working? Why are doctors always protected? I don't think that a gynecologist should ever be alone with a woman, especially a depraved one like him.

    Disgusting. His license should be permanently revoked, never mind suspending it
