Surgical?Edit

It's slightly debatable whether OB/GYN is actually a surgical speciality, usually regarded as an 'Other' speciality due to it not being strictly medical or surgical.

Could the sidebar be edited to specialities rather than surgery and then list the specialities (this could include psych, endocrinology, paediatric medicine, neurology, internal medicine etc. to include Private Practice characters), or am I asking too much?

Although maybe not surgical, I would still class it as medical. Also, I'll change the sidebar to include more specialties. I didn't have the PP ones because I don't watch it much at all so wasn't sure if what specialties were in it.-2Anthony4 (Page me!)18:48, 2 February 2009 (UTC)


Naomi? Edit

I've had a think about this before and while promotional material states she's board certified ob/gyn, I'm very much doubting she is. While endocrinology with fertility interests can be achieved via ob/gyn training or internal medicine routes, I have a feeling she isn't an ob/gyn for a few reasons: 1) she hired Addison (and the one Pete chased away) specifically as an OB/GYN - if she was one herself, there'd be no need. 2) when she and Sam went to see the nuns (in PP s1), an OB/GYN wouldn't have been necessary and she acted more as internal medicine 3) she's not performed surgery - ob/gyn has quite a bit surgical training, for her not to be performing any is a big dent for me. Yes she delivers babies and performs ultrasounds, but basic obstetric training would teach you how to deliver a baby and perform an ultrasound. Anyone? --Wiggl 20:52, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Since some material contradicts others I think we should not have her listed but have her under a see also section or list her and say that she may not be a fully certified OB/GYN or has a similar job?-2Anthony4 (Page me!)18:34, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
