This is awful. There was a Seinfeld episode that was somewhat similar, about him being sedated at the dentist's office.

We have free speech in this country.

But, you better not use it unless you have
half a million dollars to spend.

The staff was certainly unprofesional and inappropriate, but the $500K award is ridiculous.

Not if you're on the receiving end. :D

You can bet that future patients will be checked for recording devices.

You know, what they say what I am out, who cares. what they do is a little different, but then again, I'm out. Do we start recording everything so that if someone in Europe calls you an idiot you can sue if it's recorded. Again, free speech. I hope the DR is appealing using out ole beat up Constitution.

Some "professionals" have as little empathy and common sense as any "non professional" in our society. They degraded the value of the man himself in their high and mighty egos of themselves. That is the sick and heartless world we are faced with everyday.

That's right. How is this any different than when someone lowers their voice, to say a "nice tidbit" about someone in the room, so that the "offended" person won't hear them. Let's everybody grow up.

Yeah, they needed to pay for acting like what they were examining. Perhaps this will serve as a reminder to those professionals who consider themselves on the upper rungs of society's ladder that if you want to be held in high esteem, act like it. Heard on the radio, they could not locate the anesthesiologist after she packed her bag and moved out of state. Sounds like it will cost her more than the initial settlement. Oh well.
