He is said to have outraged public decency by behaving in an indecent matter by looking up a female’s skirt, without her consent while lying on the floor.
The offence is said to have happened on May 21 at Tesco, Oystermouth Road, in Swansea.
Swansea magistrates accepted jurisdiction in the case, but Abdelgawad, now of Monthermer Road, Cardiff, elected for a Crown Court trial.
He will next appear at Swansea Magistrates’ Court on September 26 when the case is expected to be sent to the Crown Court.
He was given conditional bail until the next hearing.
A GMC spokesperson said Abdelgawad had been suspended since June 12.
