AB said she explained her symptoms. Moodley, she said, wanted to review some of her medical history. It was extremely uncomfortable. For the ultrasound, she had to partially strip below the waist and he commented that tattoos on her hips were very nice, she said. I would rather not anyone comment about anything on my body unless it was a medical concern. During the Pap test performed down the hall, AB said the doctor told her that he would lubricate her, using a word that she was not familiar with but that she had assumed was a piece of medical equipment.
