"Inappropriate behaviour by doctor "

About: GPs in the Rankin Electoral District

(as the patient),

I had been seeing this GP for over a year. As I have some pre-existing health conditions I found that this GP in particular was able to help me which is why I have stayed. I always thought he was really nice to me. However, on one of my last visits I was really upset as there had been a death in my family. This doctor seemed to see that I was very upset so he proceeded to get up and hug me...really tightly. This made me feel really awkward. Then he kissed me on the cheek which made me feel even more uncomfortable. I wanted to leave right then but he was standing in front of the door and told me that he was sorry. I asked him to move from in front of the door. He just stood there saying I was really beautiful and how he just wanted to take me out for coffee. I told him that if he didn’t move from in front of the door that I would stab him with the pen I had in my hand so he moved and I walked out the door.

I see him at my chemist and he walks the other way which is very awkward for me. It has also been really difficult for me to find another doctor that understood my specific health conditions.
