Since he was NOT on call,
his bad judgement was coming to see you in the first place!
By coming to see you, he implied he cared and might stay for your delivery!
He was probably trying to be nice, coming by to say hello before reporting off to
his partner. Sometimes doctors forget they are dealing with the mind of a PREGNANT woman....we always want OUR doctor there, not someone else!
He left, quite probably, because his wife was at home with dinner waiting, and he didn't want her complaining "Why are you late? You aren't on call!" LOL!
