TORONTO -- A disgraced doctor who had his medical licence yanked for sexually abusing three female patients in 2002 had his licence revoked again this week.

The disciplinary hearing panel of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario announced its decision against Dr. David Stuart Lambert, who was found to have sexually abused an investigator posing as a patient by touching her breast.

Lambert, who was also ordered to pay costs of $27,375 to the College, will face a reprimand within 60 days.

Lambert lost it 10 years ago when he sexually abused three female patients.

One victim twice videotaped Lambert exposing himself and squeezing her naked thighs and buttocks.

Lambert, 60, had his licence reinstated in June 2009 by the college under strict conditions. He has been practising medicine since July 1979.

He was banned from treating female patients, prohibited from selling his line of skin-care products to patients and could only perform procedures covered by OHIP.

In the fall of 2010, and while his licence was suspended, Lambert had an intimate relationship with a woman, upon whom he offered to perform a cosmetic procedure.

He pleaded guilty last year to breaching the conditions and was found guilty of brushing the breast of a “patient” interested in purchasing his cosmetic injection services. He appealed this decision both at the college and in Divisional Court.

The “patient” was actually a private investigator, hired by the college.
