Would You Trust A Doctor Dressed Like This?

A new study from the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery came out recently and let’s just say… it wasn’t received well. The study aimed to identify “clearly unprofessional content” shared on social media by young vascular surgeons, such as HIPAA violations and criminal activity. Unfortunately, the study’s 3 male investigators also looked for “potentially unprofessional content” which included doctors posting photos holding alcoholic beverages and “provocative posing in bikinis/swimwear”. I was outraged by the gender bias in this study holding female doctors to a double standard, essentially saying if you’re a doctor or a woman in medicine you don’t get to enjoy legal activities such as having a glass of wine or taking a photo at the beach. I wasn’t alone, as the medical community on twitter came together with the hashtag #medbikini to denounce this study, and just the other day it was actually retracted by the journal. While that’s definitely a win, we need to continue to empower our medical professionals to live normal lives without fear of being authentic on social media, as it’s better for our mental health and truly helps us connect better with our patients.

  • OMG! I don't know where this research was done, but in Brazil it is common to see doctors on the beach drinking beer. Even in the company of patients. My father is a doctor, I have a lot of medical friends and this is not a problem here.

  • Drs are United states citizens and have every right to talk about social issues especially if an issue involves health risks to other people. However i dont see it as completely professional to talk about social issues while on the clock. Not trying to silence those that do its just an opinion. But if you have a patient you feel comfortable talking with about social issues then by all means go ahead lol

  • I was in a club once and a woman fell down from the stage and hit her head so hard it was bleeding. While the music stopped and people called the ambulance, one guy, a nurse, even though he was a bit tipsy, rushed in to help and provided immediate aid, potentially saving the woman's life. I don't know what happened afterwards as I left to clear out the dance floor for medics, but I think in many instances the help from any medical professional, even the ones being "unprofessional" is the difference between life and death.

  • My bathing suit is very modest (more modest then some of my day clothes), and yet I somehow always get asked why I'm NOT in a bikini. - When can women wear what they want?

    Nadia SvetzlanaNadia Svetzlana3 kun oldin
  • Okay, I know this isn't the point, but shouldn't you be reassured if you're doc has an attractive body? I mean, because it just means that they not only know what they're taking about, but they live it. It's kinda like having a coach for a sport that's heavy set and appears inactive, and that always kinda makes them feel less credible. But if they're active and have healthy bodies, they come off more credible. Wouldn't that kinda be the same thing? Like, doctors shouldn't be punished for being attractive and confident because there is some kind of stigma that attractive people aren't smart. (Which is interesting because there is also a stigma on the opposite side, where someone who you find unattractive is often perceived as unintelligent as well. It's almost like people just want a strictly average-looking doctor lol)

    • The stigma come from people thinking that a muscular person spend more time working out her or his body than working out her or his brain

  • Doctors are people too, it's incredibly stupid to try and stifle their personal life and opinions just because it might be "unprofessional." Doctors should be able to do whatever they want on social media as long as it isn't a HIPPA violation. However, that said, I dont think being a doctor makes you more qualified to speak on things not related to heath and wellness. Gun violence isn't a health topic, and while Dr. Mike is entitled to have his opinions and use his platform here to express them, his opinions on that topic aren't more valid than a non-doctor.

  • Its so true, so many people feel uncomfortable when they go see a doctor because they are afraid they will be judgemental. If doctors become more relatable, more people are gonna feel ok to talk about "embarassing" but important things. Literally by being more human, instead of this fake perfect facade, doctors are saving lives!

I haven't had the experience of research involving social media though, but I feel that there's also an ethical issue with the development of this study.

If you showed up to work in sweat pants and a tank top, hungover, I'd be worried and say you're unprofessional, but if you have the weekend off and you drank Friday, it's now Saturday, and you're chillin at home in sweat pants, a tank top, and you're hungover, I have no right to say you're unprofessional. IT'S YOUR HOME, IT'S YOUR LIFE, AND NO ONE GETS TO DECIDE WHETHER YOU'RE UNPROFESSIONAL OR NOT!

  • My question is would you trust a doctor that has a ton of body art just saying if you say yes immediately than you might want to fully think that through only 15 percent of people just trust people tattoos and that might not be in a professional way. Just asking because I accept them not only because both of my parents have them but because I love tats. You’re fine if you have them or if you don’t and you’re not always a criminal if you do.

  • Hola a todos, vivo aquí en New Brunswick. Mi hijo tiene herpes desde hace 9 años. Seguimos bien las instrucciones del médico, las mantuvimos pero aún así fue bastante vergonzoso que perdí todas las esperanzas. Hace 6 meses, por suerte, una amiga me contó sobre el doctor Aham y me contó cómo curó a un paciente de Inglaterra. que vio en UZworld usando raíces de hierbas tradicionales puras para curarla del virus. Les pedí ayuda después de gastar tanto dinero en medicamentos, encontrar una cura para la vida de mi hijo sería lo mejor para la familia. El Dr. hizo todo lo posible para ayudarme a preparar las hierbas y nos las envió aquí en Canadá, mi hijo las usó según las instrucciones. Por desgracia, en el espacio de 29 días, el virus del herpes desapareció. Mi hijo ha vuelto a la vida. Son buenas noticias para la familia. Gracias a todos, obtuve la ayuda que necesitaba. ustedes pueden obtener ayuda y también contactarlos algún día.

  • Just taking a photo while wearing beachwear is something different than taking planned pictures in small bikinis, specifically meant to be sexually suggestive to gain more Instagram followers. It's about the intention, which can be deducted from the body language, gesture and composition in said picture. And I can understand perfectly fine that people place mistrust in doctors who do that.

  • This reminds me of not long after I started watching your channel and there was the video were you told the story about saving a man's life on a plane because of an allergy to red meat he got from a tick. (I have terrible memory. Have no idea how I remembered this) I distinctly remember that you were wearing a hoodie and sweats and we're taking a nap. Now, these dudes spying on young women would call them inappropriate, but not you. Of course, you aren't in a swimsuit, but I think in this case a hoodie and a bikini are both casual wear that doctors (just like everyone else) can wear whenever they aren't at work. They kind of fall into the same category, but would the people with this "study" care about you? No. They're sexist. You saved a life and you weren't in a tux or a lab coat, ad so can Dr. Bikini and anyone else! Wtf were these people thinking?

  • I think it’s very important to Doctors stand up ~when they want, of course, it’s not up to anyone to order that anyone comments publicly on some subject~. But anyway, stand up to controversial topics like antivaxxers, abortion, even BLM, knowing that biased antique “study” from back then when the medicine community considered that black people are more tolerant to pain, and unfortunately knowing that many doctors still up to this day following that agenda, so professionals like you have an huge impact when standing for it. About another subjects, political or religious or whatever, you’re all humans and have the absolute right to free speech and to have your own opinions (anyway, treating all of you the same way that other people, you have the right to free speech on whatever subject, but you’re not allowed to be harmful and spread like hateful thoughts or comments, this is an obvious thing) As for alcohol, selfies, wearing whatever you wanna wear when off duty ~unless you wearing your lab coat off duty lol, i remember when I was attending Chemistry School, we used to make fun a lot of medicine students and other chemistry students as well when they would wear their coats outside the labs hahah ~, but jokes apart, you are all human, you shouldn’t be hold up to a standard with people pointing out simple things about your daily lives as normal people as being unprofessional, for God’s sake... Me, now, as an Engineering Student, I know it for myself how people are messed up, even other engineers, and most of them (male to be fair, my field is full of males, and it’s very sexist) they like to wear Social Clothes like all the time ~I don’t think I saw many of them, especially the more elitists ones, using something but a suit on a day off~ and ok, it’s their choices, but that’s not me, unless I’m in a situation or place that requires me to dress socially, I will be casual, because it’s who I am, and it’s sick people wanting to demand otherwise

  • I'm pretty sure there were more aspects of the study that were compromised. They creeped on women's profiles, social media algorithms would primarily broadcast the misogynistic comments, the internal and external validity of the study would be absolutely difficult to maintain unless the researchers themselves were neutral about the whole issue, etc.

  • While I agree with you that it went too far, I also agree that there is some validity to the "potential" list. Not for the attire or alcohol when off the clock, but on the controversial issues? Being divisive can cause patients to lose trust in their doctors, and that's not a good thing. Some patients may fear that if their own views are known that they may not get treated or taken seriously - that they may worry about the bias of the doctor impairing their judgement. Yes, such fears are irrational, and people aren't always rational - but as you said, doctors are people as well. As the old idiom goes, don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. I think the potential list has some merit even with the bias present. It just needs to be better thought out and reconsidered.
