He is a pervert. When I went to have my pap smear done, he took a picture of my crotch with his iphone. He asked if he wanted me to save it. I told him, NO! So, he erased it. Why did he do that in the first place, I wondered as I left his office. I will never go back again and certainly never recommend him to anyone.
