Dr Ramachandran has been my doctor for a few years and I always found him to be very kind, a proper gentleman. I am gutted at this news and really doubt if the allegations are true

One would hope that a thorough investigation has been carried out and therefore the man is guilty. I have been a patient also and a colleague, but one never knows. I have a daughter a similar age and quite frankly would kill someone with my.own.hands if he did it to her, and I'm sure most people would feel similarly. I wonder if any criminal prosecution will ensue

I am surprised she managed to see the same doctor 4 times at the practice! When you make an appointment, you ask to see a specific doctor, more often you are directed to a different one because the doctor's list is full. Has she asked to see said doctor at each appointment or for an alternate?

If I had felt uncomfortable after the 1st visit, I sure as hell would not have gone to see the same doctor 4 times! Neither I think would any one else!
