The Medical Council have received a complaint regarding the RTE Show – Operation Transformation. The complaint came from the Irish Patients’ Association. The group were upset due to the treatment a patient received from Dr Eva during a recent show.
A 23 year old patient named Charlotte O’Connell was heavily criticised after failing to meet her target weight by half a pound. She found little sympathy been told to “cop on”.
Stephen McMahon from the group praised the show for its positive effect overall however he felt the show went too far this time as it compromised the patients dignity.
The doctor stated that she plans to apologise to Miss O’Connell on a recent talk show appearance.
