Hello, I’m a 18 year old guy still in high school. I have to get physical for it every year and we go to the family doctor. Before the doctor comes in the nurse always tells me to take all cloths off so I’m completly naked when the doctor comes in. I have to be sitting on the table and sometimes when the doctor opens the door she is still talking to one of the nurses or looking at a clipbord. So other people can look in. I never liked this part because it is embarresing. Also to be naked in front of my mother and sister. And the doctor always takes a long time listening to my heart and back. Is this normal to have to take all cloths off for a physical? I asked one of my friends and he said he does not even have to take his shirt off…

I’m a senior in high school and had my sports exam at the gym at our school, along with about 125 male athletes on a tuesday evening. Us guys stripped to our shorts in the locker room and came into the gym and lined up against the wall.
Each guy had his vitals taken, blood pressure, temperature, weight & height by a nurse. Then we lined up to see the doctor. The doctor was set up in the corner of the gym, not in a room or with any partition or drapes for privacy. The doctor looked at out eyes, ears, asked a questions. Then we were asked to remove our shorts and he did a hernia check. Finally he did a full body skin check for skin abnomalites like rashes or sores. All in view of all the other guys in line and anybody in the gym.
The problem us guys had with this was the openess in which the hernia and skin checks were done. The principal and vice principal, a female amd male, were present in the gym during the physical. The P.E. instructors came into the gym, 2 males, 1 female. A representative of the HMO that insures the school district, a female, was present. Not to mention the 4 nurses.
