Perverted 'Doctor' Sucked on Women's Breasts to Cure Cancer

OMG 53

stethescopeThere are so many outrageous and unbelievable aspects involved in this story about fake doctor Reginald Gill, 77, of Wales; it's hard to know where to start. Oh, I know, the fact that he was a FAKE doctor and was dishing out medical advice to real patients. Advice like letting him suck on women's breasts to cure the breast cancer with which he diagnosed them.

I wish I was kidding, but according to the Mirror, Gill offered up the perverted prescription to women at his alternative medicine clinic. This week he was sentenced to eight years in jail for his heinous acts against two women, and that doesn't seem like nearly long enough.

First of all, these women did NOT have cancer. Can you even imagine going through the panic, fear, and other extreme emotions of such a devastating diagnosis for no reason other than this sick man wanted to get off? That part alone makes me shake with rage at the mockery he made of the disease.

Then, after conducting intrusive physical exams while the women were naked, he delivered the news and proceeded to assault them. While it's hard to imagine any women actually letting him proceed with the bizarre treatment, I think when you're in that vulnerable of a position, and your life hangs in the balance, you're not thinking straight. Many would likely try anything if a doctor said it would save their life. As the judge in the case said, "It was a gross betrayal of trust."

In all, Gill was charged found guilty of three sexual assaults, six assaults by penetration, and two counts of fraud. His 35-year-old wife, Leila Gill, was convicted of sexual assault and fraud and sentenced to six months. Thankfully, the victims came forward before they could prey upon any other women.

Hopefully, these women will find some comfort in knowing that he's being made to pay for his crimes and in the fact that they don't have cancer. However, I wonder if they will ever fully be able to trust medical professionals again.

Have you ever received a prescription or treatment advice from a physician that you found questionable?

If a doctor wants to suck your breast, are you really that stupid to think he's legit?

I agree with the above. Too bad there's not a cure for stupid.

First off, gross. Who would believe that?



And second, he's 77 with a 35 year old wife? WTF?

There have been extensive studies that prove breast feeding a baby for at least six months reduces the likeliness of Breast Cancer. I wonder if this is what he told the women so that they allowed him to do it. That is just wrong!!

I was in the ER for my chronic pelvic pain a while ago. I had a male doctor (fine.) but he never introduced himself. He 'dropped' his flashlight on my chest and when he picked it up, groped me. As if that wasn't enough, he proceded to ask about a depression diagnosis from when I was 15 (which was 8 years ago!! I've been off depression meds and fine for over five years now!) The depression was the result of a sexual assault, and he brought that garbage up while I'm there for pelvic pain (also documented on the chart where he found I had depression, and out of all the related visits for pain, he singles out one from 8 years ago!). He implied the pain was in my head, and let me sit with my fiance for 8 hours without any treatment. He didn't even run any tests. It was awful and degrading. I was in soo much pain. He took five hours to even see me! His nurse (a female) was no better. The pain got so bad I started to cry, I couldn't control it (embarrassing when you're 23 and crying from pain). The nurse walks by my door and just closes it. Doesn't even come in to check on me. I haven't returned to that ER since. It was terrible and the worst treatment I've ever received.

it was not to long ago that women considered to be suffering from hysteria would sometimes undergo "pelvic massage" — manual stimulation of the genitals by the doctor until the patient experienced "hysterical paroxysm" (orgasm)

right a whole load of women decided to let a 70 year old doctor such their nipples to cure them of breast cancer and then some time later decided to report the matter. well maybe they were not stupid and maybe they just suffered from a guilty conscience at a later stage. i am surprised he was even convicted.
