DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR – DO NOT see this doctor. I'm including all the details so you know why not to see him!
My GP referred me to Dr. Mena predictably for a colonoscopy. When I got to his office (after waiting for about 30 minutes, he decided he needed to do a rectal exam first. I wasn’t excited about this, but obviously obliged. Rather than leaving the room to let me (a 23 year old female) undress, he closed the blinds and asked me to drop my pants and underwear to my knees. I was so uncomfortable and visibly shaken that I started crying. He could tell I was upset and asked “What do you want me to do – it’s not that bad”. I asked for at least a gown to cover myself up with, and he tossed a paper sheet to me. I covered up with that, and sat down—still very upset. He, again, noticed my frustration and asked if I would like his secretary to come into the room. Obviously I said yes. So, he left the room- still wearing the gloves he had already put on (that he touched the doorknob at least twice with, and who knows what else outside of the office)- to get her. She came in the room and he mockingly said to her “she’s been here before, but she’s a little shy”—as if a rectal exam were a comfortable experience for an outgoing person! So, he proceeded with the exam, and showed his secretary (note: not nurse, just secretary) what he was doing, looking for, and eventually found- in my rectum. I was mortified. When he was done with the exam, he used the paper drape that was covering me to wipe my rectum (because of the jelly he used during the exam), which a) was gross and b) left me with no covering. So he and his secretary stood in the room, facing me while I had to stand up (with my pants & underwear at my knees, mind you) and pull my clothes back on. They didn’t even have the decency to turn around! It was the most humiliating experience of my life. Do NOT see this terrible doctor.
