Do not hold contact with them anymore. Do what you can to get phone records etc and deal with who you reported it to. The practice manager was very out of line and they have no right to speak to you like that. They will want you to look like the bad guy. Don't let them win.
Report her for lack of duty of care to the public also.
OP - how much have you told your husband?
I suspect she would never have made such appalling comments if a witness had been present. She certainly wouldn't have threatened you. It's a completely disgusting way to treat someone, especially someone with your medical history who is the victim in a situation where a doctor has abused a position of power with someone who came to him for help. She is of course trying to intimidate you as damage control to protect the practice. Which doesn't make her any less of a maggot.
I hope when the trauma of it passes, you are able to do what the psychiatrist suggested and harness all of the anger you have every right to feel.
Chin up, hon. You should be so proud of yourself for having the guts to speak out about this.
OP I'm concerned about how quickly this is moving and how that must be affecting your anxiety.
I don't suffer from anxiety but I have a friend who does and the chain of events over the last few days would have her rocking in a corner.
It's great your step-mum took action so quickly and was able to see the practice manager on Sunday, but you said she was seeing the GP for a similar issue as you? Perhaps you need someone else to be your support person?
I assume she told his wife because she is a partner in the practice as well? It's usual for PMs to tell partners in a practice when there has been a complaint against a doctor in the practice.
Please let us know you're ok tonight!
You're doing the right thing!!!
He has destroyed his career, not you! You were under his care!!!! If it was you coming onto him he could have/should have put a stop to it... But that's not what happened and they know it!
Do not feel guilty about any consequences he faces.
I work in an allied health field, and trust me, it's pretty much drilled into us how important it is to maintain boundaries with patients, and what the consequences will be if we don't. He knows perfectly well, he decided to take the risk for his own thrill. I hoe you are feeling better tonight
OP, I just wanted to point out this - link so that you can see in black and white that the onus is entirely on the dr to maintain a professional relationship with patients. You will also see in the bottom point that other doctors who are involved in covering this behaviour up are also commiting an offence.
