A Tennessee woman is filing a complaint after she said her doctor used an offensive term while giving her a diagnosis, according to

The site reports Terry Ragland went to the doctor looking for treatment for her severe lower back pain.

When the doctor came back into the exam room to give her results from an X-ray, he used a diagnosis not seen in any medical book.

“He said, ‘I know what the problem is. It’s ghetto booty,’ and I said ‘Ghetto what?’ He said, ‘Ghetto booty,’” Ragland said. “He said, ‘There’s no cure for it, but I could give you something if you’re having pain.’”
