Why do I have to get semi-naked to see a doctor? After talking the nurse through my very limited medical history, I was asked to undress and put on a medical gown. I then met my new doctor, talked about my medical history again, asked for a referral to a chiropractor I have scoliosis and associated back pain, and wanted to re-establish treatment. She took my blood pressure, did the stethoscope thing on my back, and did a bit of abdomen pressing. The rest was talking. So why did I need to undress and wear a medical gown? Apart from pap tests and IUD insertion, when I've been asked to remove the bottom half of my clothing - of course. What is the purpose of this disrobing for general primary care visits in the US? It takes more time they gave me 5 minutes to disrobe and 5 minutes to put my clothes back on - rather excessive given that I have been dressing and undressing myself for over 38 years, and it takes a lot less than 5 minutes!
With melanoma in my family history and moles all over my face, arms, chest and legs, I should visit the dermatologist more than, well, never. So I finally call my primary doctor to get a referral on my health plan. His office gives me two choices in Manhattan where I live — Dr K. I chose Dr B. At Dr B. My brother also has moles, and when he visited a dermatologist only a few blocks from here, the doctor offered him a photo shoot to benchmark their growth. Like most straight men, my brother is far more vain than he lets on, so he said yes and spent two hours having nudie photos taken of him and his entire body. On Flickr? What did his wife think? What if they get out on the Web?
Salaries for doctors are declining, with my boyfriend telling me that some nurses now make more than the lowest paid medical specialty - pediatrics. Getting a Date In other languages: Thanks to all authors for creating a page that has been read 85, times. My beliefs have changed several times in my life, but not those things, so my interfaith marriage has lasted 25 years. I would like to compliment the brave ladies for being the strong spouse and keeping the marriage moving forward. The closet is deep though I think that's seriously generalizing. I work part time from home and am involved in a church fortunately, but I miss my husband. I wish I could reach out to this girl and tell her not to pass up an awesome guy. I would go ahead and make boundaries with the conversation about kids and church, if that is your preference. I would bet this is exactly what she is thinking about you, which is why she is willing to have a relationship with you aren't a Mormon.
