After not having been to our clinic in town in about a year, I got a bit of a surprise today when I walked into the main entrance where patients check
in. At three separate stalls, each having a receptionist and computer, there was something I had never seen before, a camera attached to the top of
their computer screens, aiming directly at you and the waiting area.
When I was checking in and filling out a little paper work, I heard the shutter in the camera click in front of me. I went and sat down and told my
husband that I had just gotten my photo taken without my permission! When I returned the paperwork they asked for my ID. I've been going to this
same clinic for many years, but today they wanted it again for some reason.
As I waited to be called back, another patient which was standing at the desk was told she had to have her photo taken to validate who she is.
What in the world is going on? I have never seen this taking place before in my life. I felt like I was at the DMV, not the doctor's office.
I wanted to bust out my camera and take a picture of these cams, but there is a sign at the front door that says "No Cameras".
So they can take a photo of me, but I can't take a picture of them.
