The Enquirer Profiles Cincinnati's "Hottest" Doctors...

...in an attempt to play off of the popularity of Grey's Anatomy. NewsAche thinks this project was a waste of a reporter's time. Usually we love you, NewsAche, but lighten up! We think the story was totally worth it... we're all for saluting hotness, here at NBS!
But what really made us smile was reading that several doctors slammed the Enquirer for the premise of the story. For example, Dr. Janice F. Rafferty--a colon and rectal surgeon--told the Enquirer that it's what's on the inside that matters:
"Health care professionals, in general, strive to conduct themselves in a serious and professional manner, not to look 'hot,' "said Dr. Janice F. Rafferty, chief of colon and rectal surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
Booo-hooo, Dr. Rafferty. You are no fun! And who wants a colon and rectal surgeon that's no fun?
UPDATE: A photo of Dr. Rafferty is available here. She's mousy. And could maybe lose the glasses. But she's not buck ugly or anything, so we don't really know what her prob. is.
