So this woman, Tracy Lynn White, was a hospital secretary who had bariatric surgery at The Georgetown Bariatrics Center in Lexington, KY, and
became friends with patients and doctors at the clinic. She eventually observed two surgeries and offered advice to other patients in a support group.She also wore a stethoscope and white lab coat that identified her as an M.D., told some people she was a medical student from the University of Louisville, and gave patients advice on surgery and medication.
Now, here's the kicker:
Georgetown police Detective Michael Littrell said doctors at the clinic became suspicious of White's behavior and called police.GEE, WHAT TIPPED THEM OFF?
In all seriousness, I'm pretty confused about what exactly went down here, and I wish some intrepid journalist would go find out for me. How does a secretary/patient get invited to observe surgeries? How does a secretary/patient who's supposedly friends with the staff at a clinic get to WALK AROUND IN A LAB COAT TALKING TO PATIENTS?
Meanwhile, there's one more good reason not to trust a "doctor" who gives you weight loss advice.
