Thats the word from anesthesiologist Dr. Panchali Dhar, author of Before The Scalpel: What Everyone Should Know About Anesthesia (Tell Me Press).
Dhar has tended to tons of patients in the operating room and is surprised by the number of women who show up to their surgeries in full make-up, including fake eyelashes, mascara, and manicures.
She says getting dolled up is pointless because chances are, patients wont get hit on by a Greys Anatomy- style Dr. McDreamy while theyre on the operating table.
Dhar explains, Its not like it is on TV, where doctors flirt with their patients. Thats not how it works. Its pretty cut and dry.
She notes that itd be hard to have a romantic conversation with a cute doctor while under anesthesia, and since an O.R. doc usually sees their patients butt-naked, the mystery and thrill of the chase is automatically gone.
