doctor should be disbarred
7 July 2017 | by dancingflowerSee all my reviews

i was shocked that the doctor told a woman to have her labia cut off! that is beyond damaging and unprofessional! there was nothing wrong with her vagina! my lips are longer than hers and its perfectly normal. i would never cut myself and never tell someone they were abnormal. this show supports unhealthy body image and unrealistic expectations. patients with labia on the larger side should be encouraged to go to counseling and learn to love themselves.
