Yes, looking at his file on her computer WAS rude and unprofessional. I bet you over half the places you visit that personally deal with members of the public have their own "Notes" column to describe prior encounters at a glance and remind what to expect/how to act. Somewhere my mom worked had a column for little brown asteriscs (asterixes?) to denote if the person is an ass hole.
Actually, it's pretty common for doctors, or anyone in the medical field to keep notes like that. It might come off as unprofessional, but that's how they remember things about each patient. Besides, OP really shouldn't be flirting with the dentist, that's just weird.
This practice is common across many industries; pizza delivery drivers do something similar for households depending on how well they tip. For something as personal as a doctor, I see it as a good thing because it allows them to tailor their behavior to give you the best experience. Besides, anything bad written there is your own fault
When I worked at an auto center we used those to remember certain things that customers did or didn't want done to their cars. It was used to cut down on the number of fits customers would throw. Also, we used it to make notes if someone made threats or acted Inappropriately.
A lot of places do that. It warns other people who go to work with that client. If someone is extremely rude and someone who isn't used to it or new to that practice gets screamed at by that client they may not know how to handle it very well. So if it's noted on file they could have someone who is used to dealing with hard clients and knows how to control a situation like that without throwing the new person to the wolves.
Are you stupid? Patients have a LEGAL RIGHT to see their own medical records! If he demanded to see HIS records and saw those comments, then that is his LEGAL RIGHT. She shouldn't be putting rude notes into his medical records, considering the fact that they legally belong to him!
Oh my god, more illiterates. The person 102 corrected attempted to say "punny" but failed and spelled "punie" which is far closer to puny than punny and could be pronounced as puny with ease. 102's correction was not only valid, but correct in my book because it's hard to accidentally type punie.
77 - while HIPPA may allow a patient to see their own file, leaving your records up on the screen means that I can walk in behind you and see your records, which is the violation here. Having notes about a patient's history and attitude are simply good practice.
