So. Let's say you were in to see your OBGYN for a procedure,
and it was the first time you'd been to her office in a few years.
And let's say that within the past few weeks, another OBGYN in her practice had been brought up on charges of orally raping several women during pelvic exams. And you'd received a very damage-control, very polite mass letter from your own doctor, explaining that this other fellow had had to leave the practice, but that his patients were welcome to switch to other providers in the group.
And let's say that this time, in a departure from past practice, when you meet with your OBGYN, she has a small woman following her around, writing down everything she does. This small woman comes in to the doctor's office at one point, while you're sitting there alone, to eat lunch. You ask some friendly questions, and learn she is a medical scribe, who started working for your doctor just a few weeks ago.
So, a bit later, while the doctor is making friendly small talk with her hands up your hoo, you ask her if her scribe is there as a response to the recent legal trouble in the practice.
And the doctor's response is at first to act like she has no idea what you could possibly be talking about, and then to go all cool-eyed and professionally distant until the session is completed, shortly thereafter.
Would you think that was a reasonable response?
