By Around the Web

(Toronto City News) A Toronto doctor has had her licence revoked after an intimate relationship with her cancer patient that included having sex while he was receiving treatment in hospital.

Theepa Sundaralingam, an oncologist, pleaded no contest to sexual abuse and disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct at a disciplinary hearing at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario this week.

The relationship began when Sundaralingam diagnosed the man, who cannot be named due to a publication ban, with cancer in January 2015, according to an uncontested statement of facts. The affair began with flirtatious texts.
