A WHAT-Cologist?

This is just a short entry, but I found it quite funny. The lovely spouse told me about a man that works at her office, for whom English is a second language. One of his female employees had an appointment with her gynecologist, and while I don't know why, this came up in conversation, it apparently did. This man said in all seriousness, that his employee had to go see her "vaginacologist". WHAT???!!?

Now that may be a descriptive part of the job, but I don't think I have ever heard a doctor who deals with the female reproductive system called by that term. But in a weird sort of way, it seems quite appropriate. :-)
