Investigators say one of the newly reported incidents includes the alleged assault of a 14-year-old girl.

Police also say that one alleged sex assault took place after a patient was given a potent pain medication injection.

The doctor faces charges that include 11 counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual interference of a person under 16.

The doctor has worked at the clinic on Davis Drive in Newmarket since 2012. He worked at another clinic on Wellington Street in nearby Aurora, Ont., in 2011. From 2007 until 2011, the accused practised in New Glasgow, N.S.

Police are asking anyone with information about the alleged incidents or anyone who may have been an alleged victim to come forward.
