Spent the day in gynecology clinic yesterday.
I don't know what motivates some people to become doctors. Particularly what motivates people to choose certain specialties when they seem to have no real interest-- animosity even-- toward patients with the particular issues they're supposed to be trying to treat.
This guy had one solution for every problem. Stop having so much sex. Fewer partners. "Keep your legs closed." "You won't get this again if you aren't so promiscuous." "You want birth control? How about underwear. How about you use self-control as birth control instead." "You were sexually assaulted? Go to trauma clinic. I don't deal with that here."
I found myself apologizing to most of his patients after he left the room. Never a good situation when the resident has to apologize for the attending. Thing is, everyone knows this guy is a lunatic. The clinic manager apologized when she assigned me to shadow him. "If you'd gotten here early, I could have given you someone else. I'm sorry." Early? I got there on time. Why would I want to get to clinic early?
And, yes, I'm reporting this guy to the medical director.
