London police are asking former patients of suspended psychiatrist Stanley Dobrowolski to contact them after finding disturbing videos of women on his computers.

In videos taken between 2007 and 2012, at least seven women are shown undergoing physical examination by Dobrowolski — who is already facing sexual assault and voyeurism charges related to another former patient — said London Police Insp. Kevin Heslop.

“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 her level 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, a number that will take them to the department looking into the case. You can also email information to project@police.london.ca
