Doctor tells patient she has bad case of 'ghetto booty'
QMI Agency ^ | July 15, 2013

Posted on 07/17/2013 7:36:48 AM PDT by rickmichaels

A typical diagnosis it was not.

A woman has filed a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Health after a doctor attributed her back pain to her "ghetto booty."

Terry Ragland, 55, said she "couldn't believe" that Dr. Timothy Sweo, who she had never visited before, made the comment about her posterior.

"I think I blacked out after he said 'ghetto booty'," Ragland said.

After complaining to the office manager, Ragland received a letter three weeks later in which Sweo wrote, "I was trying to take technical conversation regarding your lower back and make it less technical."

Ragland was offended by the letter because she felt it implied she wouldn't be able to understand the more technical explanation of her lower back pain -- lumbar lordosis.

In keeping with with his rather unusual bedside manner, Sweo responded to the controversy by saying, "I think I do understand why her feelings were hurt but I don't understand what's offensive about it."

I hope the doctor doesn’t get a letter from Parks & Crump.

"Ghetto booty" must be like the N-word; only N-words are allowed to use it.

Maybe he should have said “Look lady, your back hurts because your ass is too big”.... bet she would have been ‘offended’ at that, too.

If a doctor had said that to my wife I would have ended up in the hospital for laughing about it.

A real doctor would have asked her how much pain-killer she needed and just prescribed that quarterly, and demand she return every three months to fatten up his retirement account. Just give her the pain-killers and make her happy....don’t bring up the big-butt thing.

First question: he be White?
then he be guilty.

Isn’t it amazing, that in this country in 2013 there is no outrage over killings, but you never hear the end of it for WORDS. People are fired over words.

Ghetto booty? Sounds like loot taken from a European Jewish neighborhood during a sack or pogrom.

You know women of African decent, they have an anger management problem.

No, the First lady isn't home, so I'll get away with this post...

What poor taste on the part of the doctor.

He should have used the medical term, “too much junk in your trunk.”

Kinda sounds like something from the chorus of a late 70’s disco song.

I think we should all ponder the tragedy of Sir Mix-a-Lot.

Years after his video, a tired and haunted man, he confessed that he lives in fear of enormous, obese women with gigantic posteriors, who invade his privacy to exhibit to him their immense booties.
