You are taking a history from a new patient. The patient, a young woman, tells you she wishes to change practiotioners because she feels uncomfortable with her previous practitioner. Her previous practitioner took a detailed sexual history which seemed irrelevant to you. During the taking of the history he commented that, given the number of her sexual partners, she would not need any sexual counselling. The prior practitioner also displayed a “swimsuit edition” calendar in his office and drew her attention to Miss May as an example of poor lifting technique. Miss May was lifting a beach ball without bending her knees. The patient requests that your keep this informatino strictly confidential, but that she wanted you to understand why she was switching practitioners.
