Jackson, TN (KTNV) -- A woman is filing a complaint because she said she's furious about what her doctor told her when she went to see him for back pain.

"He said, 'I know what the problem is. It's ghetto booty,' And I said, 'Ghetto what?' He said, 'Ghetto booty,'" explained Terry Ragland.

She claimed the doctor told her that was the source of her back pain.

The doctor later said that was his way of explaining that the woman had lumbar lordosis, a curve in her spine, that makes the buttocks protrude more.

The woman has reported the issue to an office manager who apologized.

She's also filed a complaint with the state.
