Health provider or plastic-surgery pusher?

A reader writes in…

I went to the OBGYN for a check up, and while I was cooling my feet for two hours waiting for the doctor, I found myself staring at multiple shiny pamphlets advertising laser surgery, microdermabrasion, and botox. In an OBGYN office.
Then I found out that this Laser Surgery place shares all its rooms with the OBGYN. I feel like the two practices are completely antithetical. One should create a nonjudgemental, private, safe and caring environment. The other preys on negative self-image and unbalanced expectations for women’s appearance. I felt outraged that they felt it was a good partnership.
Has anyone else found supposedly caring places for women sabotaged?

Yuck. Hopefully this is not a widespread trend.
