Doctor charged with voyeurism allowed to practice again

A New Glasgow doctor charged with voyeurism after allegedly recording a woman using the staff washroom at the Westside Medical Centre is allowed to practice medicine once again.

The Nova Scotia College of Physicians and Surgeons have lifted the medical licence suspension for Dr. Rafid Al-Nassar, though interim restrictions have been put in place.

Al-Nassar is required to have a chaperone present for all patient encounters, except those that occur in the operating room.

In addition, a sign explaining this requirement must be placed in all waiting rooms and examination rooms where patients are seen.
