A disturbing incident has been reported of a medical doctor who raped his patient during surgery.
According to reports, the woman has reported to the professional to a regulatory body without getting justice.
The Eastern Cape woman who alleges she was repeatedly raped by a medical doctor has questioned the manner in which the Health Professions Council of SA is handling her case.
The woman said she reported the matter in July to the council but only received an acknowledgement letter last month, without anyone calling her from the council.
This is not the first time care givers take undue advantage of those under their care.
The victim is set to press further charges.
