A Tennessee woman has filed a complaint with her state’s department of health over some insensitive comments made by her doctor.
Terry Ragland went to her doctor, Timothy Sweo, to get a diagnosis over why she was having back pain. To put it in Lehman’s terms, the doctor simply said, “You have a 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,” Ragland said to local tv station, WREG.
Dr. Sweo has written an apology to Ms. Ragland, saying that he was trying to explain her problem in a “less technical” term.
