I never signed anything to allow him to do this. In fact I crossed out all sections of consent forms and hand wrote no pictures of me can be displayed. My surgeon took photos on my with his cell phone. I stated I was worried about them even being in my medical file. He assured me that they would stay ONLY on his phone. Two years after my surgery, he placed numerous before and after photos of my breasts. I am so horrified and saddened by this. He has several offices and I wonder if my photos are also in his books that he provides for patients. I asked him to destroy all pictures he has of me in his possession, and he stated he cannot as they are part of my medical file. How can I be assured he does not do this again? How can I get my pictures away from this doctorI was assured numerous times by this surgeon, and his staff that my photos would not be viewed by ANYONE. He commented a few times in front of his staff that I should let him post my pictures on his web-site. I said absolutely not. So he waits two years and posts them without my permission? They have identifying things where my close friends and family would know it is me. I would like to know how I can get my photo's away from this doctor so he does not do this again. I am so saddened by this. I will now worry for the rest of my life what he will do with these pictures. No doctor should be allowed to do this to their patient. I feel victimized.
