Five women, all former patients, testified they were sexually assaulted by Ukabam during medical exams he did as a gastroenterologist.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Brian Scherman said in a written decision that it’s possible four of the women were mistaken about what the doctor did during their exams.

The judge said the fifth woman received a chest exam, not a breast exam as the woman had alleged.
