toronto - A psychiatrist from Canada, who believes that homosexuality is a disorder from which people can heal, has lost his license because he sexually abused two male patients.

Dr. Melvyn Iscove has had oral sex with two patients during therapy sessions and participated in joint masturbation, according to the decision of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. He also had anal sex in his office with a client.

'No witness describes any emotional or romantic aspects of sexual activity. Both thought that sex was part of the attempt to heal, by actually doing it, instead of fantasizing about it. '

The World Health Organization drew homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses in 1992. In Ontario, the province of Canada in which Dr. Iscove worked, in 2015 prohibited controversial healing therapies.

Iscove denies the accusations. 'We are very disappointed', his lawyer told us about it. 'We deny the allegations from the beginning, and still, and consider a profession. '
