In Sacramento, California, a woman was recently scheduled to have an upper-gastrointestinal endoscopy . . . which involves snaking a long tube down your throat. And she was worried because of her very sensitive GAG REFLEX.
You know how that sentence just made you INSTANTLY think perverted thoughts? Yeah . . . it had the same effect on her doctor.
The woman's doctor is a COLO-RECTAL surgical specialist named J. Peter Zegarra. And he told the woman she could prep for the scope and cure her gag reflex issue . . . by, quote, "practicing twice a week on her husband."
And the woman ended up telling the California Medical Board what he said.
Dr. Zegarra got an official public reprimand. The California Medical Board says, quote, "This constituted unprofessional conduct, and so this is a message that this probably wasn't appropriate."
