What would you think/do if your doctor diagnosed your back pain as Ghetto Booty? This woman sued: Woman files complaint after doctor diagnoses her with ghetto booty

Malpractice. "You have ghetto lung (aka lung cancer but that's too complicated for you to understand so I'll use a cutesy phrase), but there's no cure for ghetto lung."
Yeah, my immediate thought was that this guy has never heard of physical therapy or corrrective exercises.
I've been reading about this. There is no lawsuit. She filed charges because it was inappropriate. Just as bad, the doctor said she had lordosis for which there is no cure. Yes there is--you can strenghten certain muscle groups to help with this (lower crossed syndrome). This doctor just needs to be educated, sadly.
I agree. It was meaningless and derogatory. Ghetto booty is even less helpful than lordosis. He's never heard of swayback? That's what I use but it's easy enough to describe as an excessive curve, which is what I'll also say. He was caught up in his own stupid self-perceived cleverness.

I don't think she sued...filing a complaint isn't suing...and she definitely has something to complain about....the explanation was not just offensive, it was unhelpful...she couldn't google it for more info....
That would be a good response. I'd be upset about being given that diagnosis so I don't think she's supersensitive but not worth a lawsuit. There's no law against insensitive stupidity. But, I'd definitely post reviews about the doctor.
I would file a complaint against him with the medical board and encourage my insurance company to drop him. But a lawsuit? Nah.
I think the doctor needs sensitivity training. His claim that he was trying to make something technical understandable is BS and I think he knows it.
I think the Dr.'s comment was inappropriate but can't see that he is guilty of anything other than stupidity. I'd probably have huffed at him and made an appointment with a real professional.
