The tape also caught her calling the patient a "retard" for getting queasy during an injection, describing how she wanted to punch him in the face and "man [him] up a little bit" after talking to him for five minutes, and worst of all: making fun of him for being too nervous (the worst nightmare of a nervous person). After telling another doctor that he should get a fake page to avoid talking to the patient after the operation, the anesthesiologist laughs and says she'll write "hemorrhoids" on the patient's chart even though he didn't have them. That wasn't a joke, by the way -- she really did that.
Thousands of hemorrhoid convictions in the state of Virginia have been overturned because of this woman.
With evidence in hand, the patient went law-crazy and sued the anesthesiologist and her practice for defamation and medical malpractice. After a three-day trial that we can only hope involved the guy whipping out his dick and saying, "The prosecution rests," the practice was fined $500,000. Having undergone that sort of ordeal, we hope he spent the money on a tiny hat and coat for his dick, because damn -- this case gives hope to every guy who has had his penis insulted by a partner.
