Calls coming in since surgery doctor charged in sex assaults Add to ...

There have been more calls to police since a Toronto doctor was charged with sexually assaulting three female patients.

Detective-Constable Julie Stehlik says calls have been coming in all week after concerned women were asked to come forward following the arrest of George Doodnaught last week. He's alleged to have sexually assaulted three patients while they were under anesthetic.

While she couldn't provide details, Detective-Constable Stehlik said there have been "numerous phone calls" from people that will have to be interviewed.

She says the investigation is very much "active and ongoing," but adds it's too early to say when police will provide an update on the case because there is a lot more work to be done.

The attacks are alleged to have happened during surgical procedures at North York General Hospital between August 2007 and last month.

None of the allegations have been proven in court and Dr. Doodnaught has not yet had the opportunity to defend himself from the charges.
