Woman files complaint after doctor diagnoses back pain as ‘ghetto booty’
Published July 15, 2013
FoxNews.com

JACKSON, Tenn – 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.

Ragland said she complained to the office manager, who apologized. Then, a few weeks later she received a letter from the doctor ( edited to remove the doctors name) himself.

In the letter, the doctor said, “I was trying to take technical conversation regarding your lower back and make it less technical.”

The letter offended Ragland, though, because she felt he didn’t believe she had enough intellect to understand his more technical explanation of her lower back pain. The doctor said Ragland has lumbar lordosis, which is a fancy name for the curve of the lower spine that makes the buttocks protrude more.

America - sue happy

People need to get a grip on their hurt little feelings. Unfortunately, that is almost how I described what my back condition has caused me. Not so harshly, but close. Sorry, but no other way to do it. Meant to offend? No. Americans need to stop whinning!
