I have been writing a series on this blog entitled “How to Be An Authentic Doctor”. I am about a quarter of the way done and it has been eye-opening for me. Some stuff I do, some I don’t. No one is perfect. The one thing I don’t do is what Dr. Tressie Montene Duffy, of W. Va, is accused of unethically doing:
A Martinsburg doctor unethically doled out powerful prescription drugs and repeatedly exposed herself at the office — including forcing a female co-worker to “motor boat” her surgically enlarged breasts — according to allegations in a report from the state Board of Medicine.
You can read the rest of the article here. Trying to read between the lines, I see Dr. Duffy as doing a lot of stupid stuff. She doesn’t, however, seem to me to be a greedy, pill mill doctor. She does seem emotional labile, too trusting, and maybe too immature. The stuff she did was bad but I don’t want to judge her too much by reading one article. That being said, how about the writer of the Charleston Daily Mail having to print the exact definition of “motor boating” huh? I am sure he got a laugh from his colleagues at the office on that one.
