Underwear for Physical Exam

Mar 20, 2013 - 1 comments



physical exam











I believe that when a man goes in for a physical exam, he should strip to his underwear and sit on the exam table. Why is there a need for a gown or anything else?

Let's face it; those large rectangular exam gowns are just silly and awkward. Honestly, if I can go to the beach in a small pair of shorts, why is it inappropriate for the doctor to see me without a shirt on? How can the doctor help me to maintain my health and treat my body unless the doctor actually sees and examines my body?

There's a lot of chatter these days about medical modesty, and I think it's just overblown. Are we not adults? When I go for an exam I want to be thoroughly checked. I want the doctor to have a good estimation of not just the particulars but my overall health. This means that the doctor needs to be well acquainted with my body.

Waiting on the exam table in underwear seems completely appropriate. And, at the time of the genital/rectal exam the shorts should be pulled down or removed. This just makes good sense.

I also believe that nude with a small blanket/cover is equally appropriate. Although, I don't think it's helpful when the cover is a giant king-size wrap.

I am hoping to have a relationship with my new doctor that will allows us to stop being afraid of the body, stop being afraid of lawsuits, and focus on what matters most, my health. Right now modesty is just getting in the way.

That's the way I see it.
