Trial Hears Doctor Made Sexually Suggestive Comment To Former Patient


The sexual assault trial of a Windsor family doctor has now heard from all six complainants.

An alleged victim testified Wednesday morning following her visit to the doctor's office, 45-year-old Dr. Bassam El-Tatari hugged her.

During the hug which she said lasted about three minutes, she testified he asked her, 'what do you want me to do to you?'

He began rubbing her back.

It was the summer and she was perspiring to which she testified the doctor said to her, 'Is it the only place I make you wet?'

Dr. El-Tatari is charged with six counts of sexual assault on six different women dating from 2009 to 2015.

Another complainant told the court during her Pap test in 2014 and while he was conducting the internal exam, he asked her to squeeze his finger.

She told the court she looked at him confused but did it, to which he replied 'that was weak.'

She said no other doctor had asked her to squeeze before but 'I trusted what the doctor was doing, was right.'  Although she did admit she was suspicious.

The trial resumes next week.
