Doctor diagnoses female patient with a painful case of ‘ghetto booty’: complaint

Posted by on Jul 16, 2013 at 9:59 am

A woman in Tennessee filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health after she said a doctor told her that her back pain was caused by her ‘ghetto booty.’

“I think I blacked out after he said ‘ghetto booty.’ I think my mind was just stuck on the phrase because I couldn’t believe he said that,” Terry Ragland, 55, said.

Ragland said she had been to the doctor’s office several times before, but this was the first time she had seen this particular doctor. The doctor ordered x-rays for her, then returned with the diagnosis.

Full story.

    “I think I blacked out after he said ‘ghetto booty.’”

    The truth, it burns…

    “The doctor ordered x-rays for her, then returned with the diagnosis.”

    Should not have gone to trouble and expense of taking x-rays. That typical colored condition is easy to diagnose without x-rays.

    I saw a video clip of an interview with the patient. She was uppity. I think the doctor should expect a lawsuit.
