Christine Steele is a hired gun for the Right Wing. She poses as an editor. If Sparks is cleared of these charges- Steele should step down and the Silver-Sun news should cease to exist here.
She just reported what the medical board's intervention was. Patients have the right to know. I grateful for a free press.

You don't have to have me under anesthesia to examine my genitals.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, I WAS REFERRED TO DR. SPARKS, DUE TO EARACHES. SHE CAME IN TO THE ROOM PICKED UP MY CHART AND INFORMED ME THAT I HAD CANCER"""" I OF COURSE WAS VERY UPSET AND LEFT. A WEEK LATER I WAS CONTACTED BY HER OFFICE THAT MY SURGERY WAS SCHEDULED. I SAID I'M GOING FOR A SECOND OPINION. IWENT TO GET MY RECORDS FROM HER AND HAD A HARD TIME GETTING THEM, ANY SECOND AND THIRD AND FOURTH OPINION WAS: NO CANCER, AN EAR INFECTION ONLY. I AM GLAD THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT AND PROTECT NOT ONLY THEMSELVES BUT THE PUBLIC
Federal law provides a deadline by which patients are legally required to obtain requested medical records. Google "medical record access".

Geez, let it go already. This story is LONG over and shouldn't still be getting comments, except by people who dig it out of the trash and make new comments, making an old story waste time and space. It's just like the Texas sinkhole story...LET IT GO!
It is not a story that is over for some patients and continues to be relevant for them.

perhaps there was a reason for the exam......
if she documented, then she is OK except for the hassel
