Yes he does have a right to drop her as a patient. Yet he has no right to EVER speak to a patient like that, rather they may be overweight or not. I do believe you would have some sort of case in court more so that you have a similar conversation on recording.

No, she wouldn't. There's no law saying a doctor has to always "be nice".. You can't sue someone for being an a*****e. If that were the case my husband would be screwed.



And the recording was obtained illegally.

Not necessarily. It depends on where she lives and what she used to record it. We recently looked up the rules in our area (and talked to a lawyer) and for us, if the recording device was on the person (say a pen or a watch), it was legally acceptable. But if it was a recording device placed in the room or pocket, it was not. Weird. She'd have to check out her local laws if she decided to pursue that route (but I believe she is choosing not to).

Interesting. Probably because they're visible.

She is not going to persue it but she will do word of mouth damage. But she did tell me that the recording could be used because it was recorded on a device he saw. But she has decided to take the high road and just move on. She is a well liked person and has lots of friends....friends who are within childbearing age. They have friends as well.
