Cops find disturbing videos of women on psychiatrist's computers

January 25, 2013

LONDON, Ont. — Investigators are asking former patients of suspended psychiatrist Stanley Dobrowolski to contact them after finding disturbing videos of women on his computers, police said.

In videos taken between 2007 and 2012, at least seven women are shown undergoing physical examinations by Dobrowolski — who is already charged with sexual assault and voyeurism with another former patient — said Insp. Kevin Heslop, with the London, Ont., police.

“They were videoed without their knowledge in situations where he conducted physical examinations on them. . . and psychiatrists typically are not permitted to conduct physical examinations,” said Heslop.

He said police will also be trying to track down the women through patient lists. They want to speak to each woman to determine levels of “informed consent,” Heslop said.

“We want to reassure women that this will be done with the greatest discretion and with their best interests,” he said.

Investigators are asking former patients to phone (519) 660-5842. The former patients can also e-mail project@police.london.ca.
