Apparently it was designed by a man or someone else that had never had a mammogram since it had the jumbo-sized air conditioning vent (blasting on ‘high’) installed OVER the equipment.
The BIG ISSUE I had was with the staff.
Ok – I get it. You work with breasts ALL DAY, EVERYDAY– so there is a point where some topics are less taboo than others. However…there should be a level of professionalism in all medical offices that keep conversations with patients away from personal topics.
Front Desk Clerk:
I understand you have breast implants..
Front Desk Clerk:
Ok. Well……not to pry, but where did you get them done? There is a girl in my office that really wants them but doesn’t know where to go.
Uhhh (totally caught off guard) – Dr. XYZ. (Personally Thinking: Really? You are fricking asking me this in front of the lobby? Isn’t this violating some sort of HIPPA rule?)
G ON……NOW IN THE AIR CONDITIONED EXAM ROOM (freezing) – Employee #2
Medical Technician (yes, handling my naked breasts):
Hey- I understand you have implants. Not to impose, but there is a girl in the office that wants them too. Where did you get yours done?
“Uhhhh….. (really amazed and dumbfounded at this point) – Dr XYZ”
Ok ok – I have heard great things about Dr. XYZ. Yours look fantastic , but I’ve seen others were horrible from other doctors so I'm taking an unoffical poll. A few weeks ago this patient came in and ….blah blah blah blah – (my ears bleeding at this point)
-END of DIALO
Wow. Ok – REALLY?! 2 out of 2 employees ask me about my implants that have nothing to do with the procedure I am having done? WTH?
This crosses the line of professionalism. It’s one thing for a group of girlfriends to discuss – but medical office staff?
Get it together medical employees – plastic surgery is not up open for chit-chat discussion unless brought up by the patient.
