A doctor told a woman who suffers with multiple sclerosis that sex with him was the best cure, it has been alleged.
Kwame Somuah-Boateng, from Surrey, allegedly reassured his patient by saying “trust me, I’m a doctor”.
The 43-year-old now faces a medical tribunal over the affair with the patient, who he reportedly told that sex would stimulate the muscles in her legs.
“Trust me I’m a doctor – it will help you to get your sensitivity back,” he apparently said, the Telegraph reported.
He is said to have claimed that having sex with him would “help her pelvic floor muscles because they were weak” and she would start “to feel normal – feel like a woman”.
Dr Somuah-Boateng allegedly took the woman to a christening and also vowed to marry her and have a child with her, despite the fact he is already married with two daughters, it has been claimed.
The affair came to an end when the woman, who is in her 30s and known only as Patient A, discovered she might be pregnant – to which Dr Somuah-Boateng warned his wife would “kill” the baby.
The woman claims to have discovered Dr Somuah-Boateng’s advice was false when she went to a different medical appointment.
“At the time I thought the relationship was normal. He made me feel safe and he made me think that I couldn’t speak to family or friends about my condition and told me not to look thinks up on the internet,” she told the tribunal.

Dr Somuah-Boetang denies he initiated contact with Patient A and also denies separate charges of supplying her with any prescription medication.
He stood trial in 2015 for attempted rape and assault by penetration but was cleared by a jury. The tribunal continues.
