Thread: Does Your Doctor Make You Take Off All Your Clothes?

  1. Default Does Your Doctor Make You Take Off All Your Clothes?

    I was having my fills done (two so far) at a Med Center where I took off my shoes, got on the table and pulled up my shirt. The doctor stuck in the needle and it was all over in about 5 minutes. Today I went to a new place because it is closer to where I live and they told me to take off all my clothes except my panties. I told them they were crazy and left without getting my fill. Now I'm wondering if I over-reacted. Please let me know if your doctors make you take off all your clothes to get a fill. It seems unnecessary to me!

    I have NEVER had to take off all of my clothes and I've had 4 fills. I would feel very, very, uncomfortable if my doctor asked me to do that. Strange.

    Good gracious!! I've never had to take anything off except maybe when we did that first one under the xray I may have had a gown on top - can't remember. You're not overreacting... if you were uncomfortable, they should have met your needs and if you got a weird feeling - it's never wrong to skedaddle!!

    I have had 4 fills so far and I have never had to strip. I take my top off, put on the hospital gown with the opening in the front and that's it (I don't even have to remove my bra) I don't think you over-reacted at all.

    I never really got asked to take my clothes off in the past...fill or not...

    Now, maybe the doc was just thinking the opposite of what everyone used to think when they saw me coming.

    I have never taken off anything. Just pull up my shirt, poke, and done. Donna

    Same here - pull up shirt, poke, prod and hop down. I would have protested and left also.
