    The state board of medicine will probably document it but there really isn't anything here that would initiate an investigation at that level.

    Agree, and might end up being more trouble for you than it's worth. Just find someone else. If you wanted to have a private chat with the practice manager that would probably be OK. As long as you understood that nothing might come of it, but at least the practice manager would have a heads-up about him.

    I agree. Too much trouble for me right now and not enough time to deal with it. It really makes me furious that Dr.s can get away with inappropriate behavior (far worse than this). I can't help but wonder how many people have been in this situation!

    It's exactly this type of thinking that allows anyone-professional or other wise- to continue to act inappropriately with this behavior. If they don't get called on it, they continue. And yes, you can choose someone else. Sometimes being forthright with the perpetrator of the behavior will cease the behavior

    Trust your own instincts. You know it is innappropriate behavior. If you are the young mom, then perhaps a re-evaluation of your boundries and an appropriate response is in order. If you are not the young mom, then pay attention and choose your mate carefully. Would you want to be married to someone like that? Congrats on graduating this summer.

    Hello everyone! I don't post very often but I am learning so much from these message boards! I will graduate from nursing school this summer. And yes, it still feels like an eternity. I have a question and I'd really like to hear your opinions from a nursing point of view and from a mom's view, for those of you with children. Ok, you have a young mom (29) and a young male pediatrician (33), both married. The Dr. spends a lot of time in the room with this mom. Do you think it's strange for the doc to compliment the mom everytime she is there? For example, telling her how funny, smart, pretty, she is. Also, would it be weird for him to tell her what great hair she has and proceed to touch her hair (while standing about 3 inches from her face!)? Have you ever seen this kind of thing and is this normal behavior for young docs? opinions please.........By the way, I work in pediatrics. Thanks! :uhoh21:
