Doctor visits are uncomfortable. That's par for the course when you have to visit a professional whose job it is to get up close and personal with your body so they can find out the grossest, most uncomfortable things about you. Normally, doctors are very good about keeping personal boundaries and ensuring that their patients don't get weirded out. There are, however, those doctors whose bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired.
Like – a lot...
Here are ten of the worst ones.
1. Testicular Trauma
Ah, the irony of a male doctor telling another man to “clean himself up” after examining his testicles.
There’s all kinds of undertones here, ones that wouldn’t be out of place in an eighties movie with a rapey, evil doctor as the villain.
2. Kiss it and make it better
Pro-tip, if you’re not someone’s mom or dad, don’t ever ask that person if they want you to “kiss it and make it better.”
Especially if you’re a nurse.
Especially if you’re handling said person’s genitals.
3. Beautiful flower
File these under the words you never want to hear from your gynecologist. Ever.
Ever. Ever. Ever.
