Is this standard
Last week I went to a dermatologist for the first time.
During the taking of my history, I was asked if I wanted a complete exam or for the doctor to just focus on the condition for which I came in.
Not knowing any better, I said "complete exam".
I was told to strip totally and put on the lovely gown. When the doctor entered the room I was instructed to take off the gown and stand up. I refused.
The doctor proceeded to tell me that I had requested a complete exam. I told the doctor that had I known I would have been told to stand up completely naked, I would never have agreed to a "complete" exam.
Is this SOP for such an exam?
