If it were me I might have made a comment about it to him to let him know I was uncomfortable but my gut feeling based on what you've said is just that he might just be an overly friendly doctor. Nothing makes a pervert madder than having nothing but male caregivers. If all else fails, we place them under the care of male staff only because on my unit we are awesome like that and we look out for each other. You have my number thought, right? Im unsure of the kind of woman you are but Id flirt with the wife in hopes of a threeway, in a hospital work environment where everyone gossips -an affair with a doctor will be public knowledge quickly but the threeway allows the blessing of all parties involved. Or having a two minute uncomfortable conversation? You must weigh in all the options, search for the answers, and be professional all the time.
Now, I really like this guy as a person and would hate to have to lose the comraderie we have built over the past six months. You should ways make sure you feel comfortable with your docs, especially with surgeons who are going to be performing surgery on you. Well who knows maybe you stand a chance,I know some nurses who end up marrying doctors,just make sure you are attracted to him!!! Then I met up with my new neurosurgeon, a Prada suited Adonis straight off a New York runway. He then pulled the waste of my pants down to examine where I had my c-section, again no woman in the room and no warning. Maybe he is just friendly. But sometimes its nice to flirt a little, just for the fun of it. In my opinion, people who only want to marry for money are in the wrong profession if they choose nursing for that reason alone.
He may just be a nice guy who was putting you at ease. I don't understand what he was looking for. Asked what books I was reading, etc. Do not try to initiate nothing! I had been whining about my neck pain for a little while. The next day, although I was lying on a table for injections, he was, I think, flirting. Another thing I've learned through working as a beverage cart girl at a golf course for a lot of summers in highschool is that sometimes much older men just have no clue how to relate with younger women they think are attractive.
I agree with the others who say that if you personally feel like he crossed a line then it's your right to find a different doctor. You're not going to make any more comments like that, understand? One dr in my practice has a host of them, but the other 2 dont seem to, as much. I feel much better qbout it. Would you date a doctor? This all reminds me of 'The Firends' episode. I told the charge nurse to switch him to another nurse male the next day. Was certainly not appropriate if you ask me, but I can't say I made an issue out of these comments, even if I could have.
There also seemed to be just a playful banter throughout the whole thing. I had actually considered finding another place to go, but decided to sleep on it a few nights and see how I felt and I didn't seem to think it was a big deal at all. I have been to a pain clinic 3 times in 3 years. I've have a C-section and a hyster and my physician examined the area without an assistant. He examined me, very thorough, too thoroughly in my opinion. I tried telling them that I had a fiancé and that did nothing. Plus you must be attractive too!!! However, due to his marital and professional status there seemed to be nowhere for this relationship to go.
The problem is he is my physical therapist. You need to stop right now. How would I know if my same sex female therapist has a crush on me. I can't say exactly what this was. I got a second opinion before my surgery because I wasn't convinced that I needed it. We decided neck surgery was the next step, as I'd done the physical therapy, an epidural they're not just for childbirth anymore and got nowhere.
You need to shut them down more forcefully. He could lose his job or hurt his career track. Feelgood…would you like to have a drink after work one day? I really Had started to debelop feelings for him. Say the doctor is 40 and the patient 30. You will be having other surgeries so he was checking your c- section site.
Did he say if they notice only the young, slender types or any type they deem attractive? You are more vulnerable to them because you have to fully put yourself in their hands, for treatment. It just so happened that some of my Nursing friends have been there already; on that awkward situation wherein you have to choose between love and your profession. Some people like docs with that type of method and some don't. However, several times since then, he suggested that I should head to the lake after my appointment. That sounds normal to me. You need to do something to find out for sure, initiate conversation something, because so far he has you unsure, I guess because he is also.
There was this one doc. By the way, I am married and feel as if I have not done anything to encourage this behavior. It sounds like he is not for you so it's completely ok for you to get a new surgeon since you're not comfortable with him. Also, a physical therapist is not a doctor. Do men doctors notice attractive female patients? Then, he needed to look at my abdomen, so he just pulls my shirt up, not even a warning and looks. In order to be successful at dating, however, they learn to ignore that feeling. So I smiled and then he smiled back.
