Man Arrested for Posing as Gynecologist
Associated Press ^ | Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Posted on 11/24/2004 10:33:16 AM PST by presidio9

A Texas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for posing as a gynecologist (search) — with an office in a self-storage complex.

Authorities in Dallas launched an undercover investigation after seeing an ad in a weekly newspaper offering free medical care. A prosecutor set up the undercover sting with an investigator posing as a patient and using a hidden camera.

They say Thomas Remo wore a scrub shirt and had some medical equipment in the small kitchen of the storage facility office where he worked.

What patient would expect to meet their doctor in a self-storage complex?
I know HMOs can be tight with the bucks, but this is unbelievable and I would guess this phony doctor served illegals.

No different than getting "chiropractic" down at the local mall next to the Chick-fil-a.

I would have liked to heard the conversation on how they decided down at the station who was going to go in 'undercover'? LMAO!

After Remo's arrest in September, authorities got calls from women who said they were victims, but did not want their identities revealed in court records.

Yeah, I guess if I fell for that line, I wouldn't want to talk about it, either.

Let's see--Kerry got over 55 million votes, and was doing better among women. So, I calculate that there are close to 30 million American women who might fall for a prank like this.

I've actually been wondering about this story. Didn't this guy advertise in a fetish magazine? My guess is that the guy's defense will be that he was just "role playing" and that he thought, given where he advertised, that the women were in on it.

If you're trying to catch a phony gynecologist, where's the best place to hide the camera?

Hold on, the gyno's name was Thomas Remo? And let me guess, his first patients name was Doloris. A slick profession to keep your hands on.

You'd be surprised how daft women get if they think you're doctor. One of my credit cards has "Dr" printed on it instead of "Mr" by mistake & it's remarkable how many female cashiers & suchlike go all "funny" when when they see it.

I've not been asked to perform any medical services but I have had to explain that I'm not in fact a medic on a few occasions when someone starts telling me their symptoms etc, etc.

Well, yes.
Kitchens are optional at extra cost as well.

I'm still spinning over the fact that people didn't seem to think anything was amiss at meeting a 'doctor' at a self storage unit.
Boggles the mind.

Got me.
There's purse cams, bra cams, pen cams, watch cams..
They can pretty much make a remote cam out of anything with enough size to hide the cam in.

Also note that the man going door to door giving breast exams is not a real doctor. He just wants to see your t*ts.

The counts stem from an undercover investigation that began after authorities saw an ad in an alternative weekly newspaper offering free medical care and "fantasy exams for couples."

These women probably sued Ed McMahon claiming that he promised them millions of dollars.
