Woman secretly records doctors making fun of her during surgery
HOUSTON -- A woman says she recorded doctors making fun of her body during surgery.
Ethel Easter said she hid a tape recorder in her hair extensions while undergoing a hernia operation. The audio tape was obtained by KRIV.
“This is my natural hair I had a weave at the time which is braid extensions and when I put my hair up I put the recorder right in my hair,” said Easter.
Easter says doctors made fun of her size and made a reference to Bill Cosby while touching her body.
According to the report, Easter came up with the plan after having a tense encounter with a doctor who told her she would have to wait two months to have her surgery. She says the entire experience has given her "self-esteem issues" and she is considering filing a lawsuit.
A spokesman for Harris Health System declined comment citing patient confidentiality laws.
