Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

I was having alot of pain in my penis and went to my Dr who is a female. I was last patient for the night so after the nurse took my vitals she was allowed to leave. The Dr came in and talked to me. She gave me a drape and told me to undress from the waist down and left. She soon returned and knocked, asking if I was ready. I said yes and she entered followed by the from desk girl. She said her nurse had left and the secretary was the only staff left to be a chaperone. I was in shock by this. The Dr walked over to the table I was on and the chaperone stood right next to her. The Dr removed the drape to look at my penis. The secretary had a huge smile the entire time. I was so embarrassed by her seeing me this way. Luckily I didn't get an erection. The Dr covered me and told the secretary she could go. We finished, I dressed and went to check out. The girl smiled as I walked over. As I was leaving she winked saying she hopes to see me again soon. Was this right for the Dr to do? What if I would've got an erection in front of the secretary? Is this even allowed? SMH at some Drs.

All seems a bit strange. I have never had a doctor (yes mine is female) who brought a chaperone into a genital exam.

I there should have a male secretary as a chaperone of a female genital doctor to exam the males properly then there would be no hesitation for males patents...

I suppose your doctor could have made you come back the next day so her nurse could be there. Would that have made you happier?

Where I live there is no law against what she did.

I have never had a chaperone present for an exam but I have had a female trainee there. I did have a whirlpool back massage by a beautiful young lady once while I was sitting there naked. When she noticed my erection she just looked at me and smiled. She was standing behind me so she looked at it every time she leaned forward to massage my lower back. It was just the two of us, she didn't invite any others to the show. Now that might have been inappropriate if she had invited spectators. I was 19 at the time and I was not uncomfortable with it but if I had been 14 I might have been. 

Erections are a normal thing for a young guy with a female present.

Yeah that was completely inappropriate. I would not have allowed the doctor to remove the drape with the receptionist in the room. If the doctor tried to insist, I would have asked them both to leave while I got dressed and then I would have left.

This was improper it violate Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 3.1.2 which reads in part: "When individuals who are not involved in providing care seek to observe patient-physician encounters, e.g. for educational purposes, physicians should safeguard patient privacy by permitting such observers to be present during a clinical encounters only when:
(a) the patient has explicitly agreed to the presence of the observers(s)."
The doctor should have asked for consent to have anyone else in the room watching a modestly sensitive examination.

What is wrong here is not so much that the female doctor used her secretary but that she did not ask you first before using any other female as a chaperone.
Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 3.1.2 reads as follows in party:
"Individuals legitimately present during patient-physician encounters include those directly involved in the patient’s care, and can include other members of the health care team or employees of pharmaceutical or medical device companies when they are present to provide technical assistance, in keeping with ethics guidance.

When individuals who are not involved in providing care seek to observe patient-physician encounters, e.g., for educational purposes, physicians should safeguard patient privacy by permitting such observers to be present during a clinical encounter only when:

The patient has explicitly agreed to the presence of the observer(s)."

The secretary was not directly involved in patient care and had no business being there without your explicit consent. Nor would the nurse without your consent since she would not have been directly involved in your medical care. !

I suppose I've always been asked but I never really paid much attention and don't really care. At the male physician's office who my wife and I both had until Obama care became law and he closed his doors (you can keep your doctor). He worked alone and had a female receptionist. He never bothered to have anyone come in if we were going to be naked for an exam. We were always naked for a physical. She might bring in something he needed on occasion. With my new female doctor I'm never naked anyway and a "physical" only amounts to hi how are ya listening with a stethoscope over your clothing and any questions? If you want the doctor to see your skin you have to make an appointment with another doctor (more money). I guess that's how they get around the reduced payments of Obamacare.At the VA she has no witnesses either. Once she had a female trainee examine me. She did ask me if that was OK. She did the most thorough exam I've had in years. They do coordinate the blood tests so I only have to get one drawing.
We're all adults, we know what the other gender looks like, what's the big deal?

Yes, it is OK. the physician can use a chaperone if she wants. What difference does it make if it is a medical assistant or a secretary? It is not like medical personnel get lessons in seeing naked patients. What should have happened is that your physician should have asked you first. It is about communicating with your patients! A similar thing happened to me too. If it happens again I will get up and walk out.

As for the secretary winking at you that is inappropriate. I personally would take it as a compliment. Would you feel any different if the secretary was gay.

I personally would not go back to that physician. There really is not need for a female physician to use a chaperone with a male patient. Men are not passively aggressive. They will not complain that they were sexually abused when they were not. In any event it was very rude of your physician not to ask for your consent before bringing in a female chaperone. The rule is that when you go to a physician you obviously consent to her examination. However, you only consent to what you consented to and what you consented to was whoever provided you care. You never consented to anyone who was not necessary to that examination.

The use of Chaperones is covered in AMA Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 1.2.4 and required that the policy on chaperones be communicated to the patient. Patient Privacy and Outside Observers to the clinical encounters is covered by AMA Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 3.1.2 and requires that the patient explicitly agree to the presence of observers. Your objection should not be that a female secretary was present but that ANYONE was present to sit and watch without your permission or even being informed in advance!

Consider yourself lucky, when I was examined I have two women just sitting there watching and because I did I actually had a semi. When I protested this treatment they fired me as a patient.

Why would you care? Do you think they don't know what a penis looks like? Most grown ups know what the opposite sex looks like.

would they treat a female like that? hell no, if female is getting a physical and is naked, would a male doctor call in another man (receptionist) to be a chaperone? I think not!!! i would never see that female doctor again. DOUBLE STANDARDS IN HEALTHCARE, I NEVER PUT UP WITH THAT c**p. i ALWAYS ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS!! dont be a simp, put your foot down, dont let these females abuse you!!
