Doctor gives 'ghetto booty' diagnosis

A Tennessee woman is filing a complaint after she says her doctor used an offensive term when giving her a diagnosis. She says he told her that her back pain stems from having "ghetto booty."

Terry Ragland had been to this doctor's office twice before, but this was her first time seeing Dr. Timothy Sweo.

"He said, 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,' according to Ragland. "And I said, 'Ghetto what?' He said, 'Ghetto booty.'"

Terry reported the issue to an office manager who sincerely apologized.
