A London urologist told Dr. Rod Kunynetz’s disciplinary hearing that any person with common sense can tell the difference between having a penis or a large belly pressed against his or her legs.

Dr. Gerald Brock performed a urological exam on Kunynetz on Nov. 26, 2015 to determine whether the Barrie dermatologist’s belly concealed his undersized penis.

Brock testified at the College of Physicians and Surgeons hearing earlier this year that Kunynetz has an enormous paunch but his undersized penis is still visible and palpable.

Kunynetz is facing allegations that he sexually abused two of four patients by rubbing his genitals against their legs while he examined them. Kunynetz has denied any sexual misconduct and asserts his overhanging belly would have prevented his small penis from touching those patients’ legs.

“I would find it incredibly hard to believe that any person on the street couldn’t tell the difference between a penis and a belly being pressed against them,” Brock said Tuesday.

When Kunynetz’s lawyer Matthew Sammon asked him how the person would know the difference, Brock replied, “I believe it’s called common sense.

“I think your contention (that patients mistook Kunynetz’s belly for his penis) is ridiculous,” said Brock.

“Are you getting upset?” asked Sammon.

“No, not at all, it takes a lot more than that to make me upset,” said Brock.

Brock chemically induced a partial erection on Kunynetz. The dermatologist, naked from the waist down, stood over him as Brock sat on an examination table as if he were a patient. The goal was to determine whether Kunynetz’s penis could be felt — instead of his enormous belly — against Brock’s leg.

“I have no doubt, zero doubt, if it was his intention to do so, he could have (pressed his manhood against the patients’ legs),” Brock told college counsel Carolyn Silver earlier.

Brock, who has practised as an urologist for 23 years, said some men do have a “buried penis,” which means their genitals are covered by an abdominal girth.

The hearing resumes July 11.
