Victoria urologist Dr. John Kinahan admitted he snapped an image of his patient's catheter site, then texted it, along wtih a joke, to somebody else.

Kinahan was fined $20,000 for "unprofessional conduct" and ordered to take  training in ethics and professionalism.

He's been suspended from practice for six months, and will be monitored by the College of Physicians and Surgeons upon his return.

The College investigated after Kinihan's patient filed a complaint.
