AMSTERDAM – A psychiatrist from Veenendaal has been banned from practising after he sexually abused a patient.

The regional disciplinary tribunal for health care in Amsterdam has come with this decision. The man molested his patient for years while she suffered from depression and addiction to medicine, the woman's lawyer reports.

The psychiatrist also held the woman's sessions at unusually late times; her sessions were often scheduled between 10.30 pm and 2.30 am. The lawyer also says that the doctor failed to adequately update the woman's medical file and had not formulated any treatment plan.
