A GP is accused of molesting four female patients at his surgery in Kingsbury between 2006 and 2011.
Dr Mohammed Aquil Kamal allegedly carried out intimate examinations and massages for ‘special patients’ at Church Lane Surgery, in Kingsbury Road.
The Indian-trained medic, who is banned from examining women or girls without a chaperone, denies the charges, claiming that the examinations either did not take place in the way alleged or at all.
He is facing a fitness to practise proceedings at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester where he could be struck off if the allegations are found proved.
Ed Morgan, for the General Medical Council, said the misconduct spanned five years and related to his treatment of four women.

Patient B, said she was subjected to an unnecessary breast exam between May 2009 and January 2010 before Kamal massaged her shoulder, arm, back, buttocks and right leg, the tribunal heard.

Patient C, is claimed to have had a breast examination, before Kamal massaged her neck, shoulder and back for non-clinical purposes at an appointment between September 2009 and April 2010.
During an appointment with a fourth woman, Patient D, on or around 19 March 2010 Kamal is alleged to have lifted up her top, unfastened her bra and pulled down her leggings.
The GP accepts he had not provided a chaperone for several of his appointments, but claims it was not appropriate in these cases because the examinations were not intimate.
Kamal denies any impropriety and the hearing continues.
