Woman Files Complaint After Doctor Diagnoses Her With 'Ghetto Booty'

Got a lower back pain? Perhaps you have a case of ghetto booty. At least that's what Dr Timothy Sweo -- who is currently being investigated by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners -- allegedly said to his patient, 55-year-old Terry Ragland.

"He said 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,'" Ragland told WREG in Memphis. "I think I blacked out after he said ghetto booty. I think my mind was just stuck on the phrase because I couldn't believe he said that."

Ragland was diagnosed with lumbar lordosis, says NY Daily News, but Sweo decided "to take a technical conversation regarding your lower back and make it less technical," he later wrote her after she had complained to the office manager.
